Shockwave 12U emerged victorious at this year’s Glenview Titans Fastpitch Thunderbolt Classic, going the entire weekend (June 10-12, 2016) undefeated and besting the McHenry Jr. Warriors in the championship round 12-4. The team has racked up an impressive 28-6 record so far this season with two first-place finishes and two second-place finishes in the four tournaments they have participated in to this point. See a little swagger in this pic? They’ve earned it! This weekend 12U will be playing in the Trevian’s Father’s Day Classic.

Shockwave 14U has also racked up an impressive record so far this season: 18-1. That one loss was to Warren Wave Silver and gleaned a second-place finish for our 14U at the GTFA Thunderbolt Classic. The team also has two championships under its belt, one in Evanston and one in Kankakee (picture at left). 14U continues to work hard and is heading down to Peoria, Illinois this weekend for their fourth tournament of the season.

Shockwave 16U participated in their first tournament of the travel season last weekend at the Schaumburg Sluggers Summer Spectacular. Undefeated in pool play on Friday night, they were the number one seed from their pool going into double elimination rounds on Saturday. A loss to Midland Magic sent them into the losers bracket to face Libertyville Elite.  A win against Libertyville advanced them to a match-up with Roselle Rockers Purple, but Shockwave fell in that game and went home for good. 16U is off this weekend, but will be playing in a super regional in Elgin, Illinois on June 24-26.

Good luck to all our teams in their upcoming games!  #GoShockwave #LikeAGlenviewGirl
