There are plenty of opportunities for a 12-year-old to play their favorite sport nearly year-round if they want to pay to attend the "best clinic", the "top camp" or be on the "elite traveling team".
The thirds continued their fine form with a 5-1 win over Rickmansworth, as Lucy Robinson netted a hat-trick, and player of the match Emma Roberson bagged a brace in only her second senior match as the sixth team edged past Stevenage 2-1.
"From that point on, he's become a way better hitter, and every day he works as hard as he can in every drill. They know we have a good, quality team here", Brush coach Kevin Fergus said. "We have a lot of solid pieces".
Simple things like fielding and throwing on defense turned out to be the big difference in the win on Thursday.
With a 3-0 lead heading into the second, Lakewood took full control of the game with an eight-run inning. They managed to score 6 runs in the first inning.
All the success for these area teams this winter was a reminder of what makes high school sports so great.
The game was square at 4-4 as the final inning began. This season, he's already been named Pre-Season 1st Team All State. "And they aren't working on the fundamentals because all they do is play games and nobody is pushing them to work on their weaknesses". "He was in the zone and his one off speed pitch he threw was good". "I didn't know really anything about his background, didn't know what he knew, but he has come in and has great passion for coaching and he's extremely positive".

"That helps our defense stay on our toes because you're throwing strikes".
"The lads definitely saved their best game for the one that counted the most". "He never gave in".
"We hope the parents got something out of it".
"Jordan came in did a great job bridging the gap between Aiden and Wyatt, added Coach Summers". The Pride punched one more run in the books before the inning was over. RTR had six games of a single-digit point differential and had multiple games where the Knights climbed out of a double-digit deficit and came back to win. But while both teams entered the contest with records of 0-0, the postgame greeting was more about what is coming to an end than what is just beginning.
However, Rio Grande also donated two runs to AHS in that inning. "You say everything you can say and put it in their hands at that point". "I'd rather have been out there, battling with the guys, but to see them battle the way they are makes me feel phenomenal".
