This weekend Sudden Impact 12A played up in age level to 14U in the ASA Combat Series / Junior Olympic Tournament at Sprinker Park in Tacoma, and went 4-0 to capture the championship. The team featured a steady offensive attack, and outstanding team defense, which was highlighted by turning a triple play in the championship game. In the end, the Sudden Impact girls outscored their older division opponents 36-6 over the four games, and the Run (mercy) Rule was invoked in the championship game as the Sudden Impact girls defeated the Issaquah Flames, 11-1.

Winning a championship in an older age classification was a great sendoff for the team as they head south to play in the ASA 12A Junior Olympic Western Nationals in California beginning next week. Sudden Impact players are: Valerie Armas, Sierra Bains, Taylor Gower, Dominique Greeno, Krista Jones, Kelsey McDonnell, Talia McMahon, Maddy Roskie, Alyssa Ubrun and Taylor Weimern-Pierce. The Sudden Impact organization has been involved with competitive fastpitch for Federal Way girls since 1990. The 12A team is coached by Raj Bains, Travis Ubrun, Pat McDonnell and Mike Jones.
