After a memorable regular season with far more highlights than low, the 10u DG Rebels [Trakas] entered the year ending South West Suburban Tournament as the second seed.  The girls then caught fire at the right time going undefeated in each of their contests.  The team was bolstered by their best pitching of the year with the Rebel arms allowing just three runs during their five game stint.  Facing heated competition versus teams from Yorkville, Woodridge and the top seeded Lemont Lightning, the Rebels stuck to their season long mantra of “playing their game” to great success.  
Congrats to the girls and their families on a whole year of hard work and dedication.
