Shockwave Improves Overall Record to 6-1 at McHenry Round Robin

Illinois Shockwave trekked up to Bates Park in Woodstock today to participate in a round robin hosted by McHenry County Heatwave.  Shockwave won all three of their games, improving their overall fall ball record to 6-1.  Today’s wins were truly about team effort with every single player making valuable contributions to the day’s successes, and it was truly a pleasure to watch.  The team will head back up to Woodstock again tomorrow to participate in a second day of round robin fun hosted by Heatwave.  You’ll find pictures from today’s games posted on Facebook and Flickr.

Shockwave Finishes Weekend with 3-1 Record After Grayslake Doubleheader


On Sunday, September 7, Shockwave played a doubleheader against Grayslake Pride at Alleghany Park (Grayslake).  The team got off to a rocky start in the first game that morning, losing 13-1, but rebounded in the second game to win it 4-3.  The split put their weekend record at a respectable 3-1 as they spend this week preparing for two days of round robins this upcoming weekend in Woodstock.
