2005 - The Season in Review
Posted by John D'Angelo on Jul 06 2005 at 05:00PM PDT
Hard Work, Commitment, and a Winning Record!
30 wins, 13 losses and 1 tie in Class "A" tournament games - The Alle-West Hurricane's first season of tournament play had many ups and downs. This talented group of ladies learned that both wins AND losses must be dealt with when playing at a highly competitive level - and how individuals react to adversity defines the organization's character and reputation. Players and parents alike learned that developing a team attititude takes much more than just words. And through the last four tournaments, a positive "team" attitude carried coaches and players to a 70% winning record for the 2005 season. This level of success is far above most first-year tournament teams - congratulations to every Alle-West Hurricane player and parent!
A handful of detractors have chosen to carry on a negative dialog within the softball community - we are not willing to do so. Alle-West Fastpitch is confident that its on-field and off-field conduct and positive attitude showcases the WINNERS, while the contrasting negative attitudes of others speak for themselves. We stand by the philosophy, goals, and mission statement that our organization has followed in the past, and will continue to follow in the future.
The Hurricane 14U team started 2005 with a first-place finish in the "Up All Night" tournament in January.
Five local tournaments in June and July, and Summer road trips to Toledo, OH and Zanesville, OH rounded out the Hurricane's inaugural season schedule. The Hurricane 14U team played in ASA, NSA, PONY, and USSSA sanctioned tournaments in three states.
Details from each 2005 tournament are available in the "Hurricane News" section of this site.
Alle-West Fastpitch thanks all sponsors and boosters. Through hard work, commitment and respect, we will strive to have a positive impact in our players' lives, both on the field and off.
