The Central Jersey A's 12u has moved up from a successful 10u season with a 45-16-2 record while winning 5 tournament championships and placing 2nd in 3 tournaments. We ended up our trip to USSSA Nationals with a loss to the NJ Prospects in their third game of the day with a total record of 4-3-1 in playing the best softball has to offer! While facing pitchers that threw 55mph, intense defenses, power hitting, and aggressive base running the A's managed to rise to the occasion and give those teams all they had. Placing 9th, we managed to finish in the top 12 in Maryland along with only two other NJ teams, the Kraze and the Prospects. We faced 3 out of the 4 top teams there and we tied the runner up, the PA Strikers 3-3 in pool play. We now look forward to working hard in the offseason and preparing for a successful first year 12U.
