Triple Crown Summer Nationals 10u Champions

7.20.22 NTX Tribe 10U - Maddux ended their season as CHAMPIONS at the beach this week in the 2022 Triple Crown Summer Nationals at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! The boys went 7-0 and poured it on opponents for 5 straight days of baseball! We had exciting walk-off wins, fantastic pitching, some clutch defensive plays, hot bats and battled some amazing talent! In between, they managed to have a bunch of fun and make some fantastic memories! (*Missing from the pictures was our Owen, who had to turn back home on his way out due to a family illness - we brought it home for you!) This group wrapped up Spring with a 38-20-2 record and the coaches absolutely love seeing their development and growth! We are so excited to start the 11u chapter this Fall…after a well earned break!

NTX Tribe 10u - Maddux 
ASA 10u Competitive League Champions
The boys wrapped up a strong regular season focused on development and situational learning. Every player had the opportunity to pitch with emphasis on those that usually don’t pitch in tournaments. Several kids gained live experience at positions they’ve not had much time at or have never played before. We had several hit their first over the fence HR! In all, it was a great season of learning, applying, and seeing the results of their hard work! They wrap up the season with the ASA Tournament championship Thursday night!

The Championship game started off HOT. 3 up, 3 down. Defensively the team played their best games in this tournament and the Championship game was no different with a tie game of 5-5 in the 4th.

8U Maddux's First Game is In The Books!

Baseball on a school night (especially the first weeks of school) is a new thing for these kiddos, but they battled and came away with a BIG 26-17 WIN. The team rallied as they entered the second inning down by 5 runs. They answered with 4 runs but it still wasn't enough to take the lead. As the game went on, they found their groove, scoring 20 runs total in the 3rd, 4th & 5th innings, holding their opponent to 9 runs across those same 3 innings. Way go start off the season Tribe!

End of Season Fun!!

June concluded 7U Maddux's second season together. With some new boys on the team and playing up into the 8U division, everyone got the chance to grow and challenge themselves. Regular season ended with a 5-3 record, but the boys celebrated a big win during the end of the season tournament, having beat the #1 team in the league. Fall brings new tournaments, new competitive teams and a new 8U Team!

7U Blue take home their first RING in the ASA End of Season Tournament

6.8.19 | Despite the rain on Thursday, 7U got the W against the undefeated team, 'Thunder', in the semifinals which sent them to the Championship game! Bats were hot and they ended many innings with the 5 run rule, but in the end, the Lonestars came away with the win in the last inning. It was a great game with plays you wouldn't expect from a typical 7U team. Their field awareness and base running made the game exciting and intense! With the regular season over, they've still got their World Series tournament to look forward to in mid-June. Good luck boys and great job in the 8U division this season!

It's Springtime in Texas!
