Girls ranging from ages 7 to 19 were part of a group of players selected to participate in the fast pitch softball tournament. All Milpitas teams at the 53rd annual tournament — 18 and under, 12 and under, 10 and under and 8 and under — finished in the top three in their age divisions. On July 24, players, coaches and their families traveled to “Salad Bowl of the World” for the opening ceremony. All the girls participated together in a group dance and cheer, which they practiced the choreography for three weeks, to represent their city. “Milpitas by far was the group who had the crowd in an uproar and had all the people in Rabobank Stadium erupting in a loud applause for our girls. We had a great time representing Milpitas at opening ceremonies and certainly left a lasting impression and maybe a standard for years to come,” said John Hadden, league president. The 12 and under team, coached by Hadden and Angelo Lamonia, claimed a second place medal. Under coaches Ondrey Betner, Todd Starkey, Poasa Vai and Ruben Vidal, who have for the most part led the same group of girls since the 6 and under division, the 10 and under squad also finished second in its division. Led by coaches Matt Becker, Alex Garcia and William Nielsen, the 18 and under team, mostly 13 to 16 year olds, placed third in their division. The 8 and under team — coached by Michael Arteaga, Rosie Sedillo-Walker, Jerome Toombs and Carlos Quinonez — also finished third in its division. “All the girls amazed their families and friends with the amount of heart, hard work, and effort,” Hadden said. “Their invested time into the game and leaving it all on the field proved that Milpitas has nothing but the finest group of softball players.” Report an errorPolicies and StandardsContact UsSubscribe Today!All Access Digital offer for just 99 cents!blog comments powered by DisqusGet Morning Report and other email newsletters.
