Congratulations to 16u’s Maddy Schoeff on hitting 2 home runs in one game!

Maddy belts out the first of two home runs as her teammates look on from the dugout in a semi-finals game at Illinois ASA’s New Year’s Bash at Avanti’s Dome in Pekin, Illinois (January 8, 2017)

Illinois Shockwave 16u participated in Illinois ASA’s New Year’s Bash held at Avanti’s Dome in Pekin, Illinois on January 6 – 8, 2017. The team went 1-1 in pool play and won their first elimination game against the Avanti Yellow Jackets (7-6) to advance to the semi-finals. In the fourth inning of that semi-finals game, which pitted Shockwave against Premier Fastpitch-Black, Maddy Schoeff blasted an over-the-fence dinger to get her team on the scoreboard. The team was able to score two more runs that inning, but still trailed behind by one. Not content to rest on her laurels, Maddy hit a second over-the-fence dinger again in the fifth inning. Ultimately, Maddy’s homers weren’t enough to win the game (Shockwave lost 7-4), but they made for an exciting afternoon of softball and her teammates couldn’t have been happier for her. Congratulations on your stellar performance, Maddy! We are so proud you are a part of Illinois Shockwave!
