Kaitlin's First Tournament

Kaitlin plays softball for Fresno State and they had their first tournament this past weekend. Mrs. Griffin was able to go out there and I know that she had so much fun watching Kaitlin play. Kaitlin played awesome this weekend and really got her senior season off to a great start!

Their first game was on Thursday against Toledo and they won 9-1. Courtney Moore hit a grand slam in the 4th inning to put Fresno up 4-1, Michelle Moses hit a homerun, and then in the 5th inning Kaitlin hit a 3 run homerun to win the game, 9-1. Mackenzie Oakes, Kaitlin's roommate, pitched. All four of these girls are seniors and they just had an awesome first game.

On Friday, they beat North Dakota State 1-0. Saturday they played UC Riverside and were losing 2-0 in the 4th inning until Kaitlin hit a 2 run homerun to tie the game up. They ended up winning 6-2. Mackenzie also pitched that game. They also played Sacramento State on Saturday and were losing 1-0 in the 6th inning until Kaitlin hit a RBI single to score their only run. They went into international tie breaker and ended up losing in the 8th inning, 2-1. Kaitlin threw out two runners in that game.

On Sunday, they played Long Beach State and went into international tie breaker again. They had a chance to score in the 7th because Kaitlin hit a single with runners on, but they ended up losing 4-1.

Here are some pictures from the weekend that Mrs. Griffin took...
