18U Gold Wins PGF Qualifier in East Peoria
Lightning 18U Gold PGF Qualifier Champs  The 18U Gold Team went undefeated to capture the tournament championship and a bid to the PGF 18U Premier Nationals in Huntington Beach, Ca.   The tournament was highlighted by an exciting second round game with the Illinois Chill which saw 3 lead changes.  The Lightning rallied from 2 down in the bottom of the 7th... the Lightning rally was sparked by Kelly Pattison's 2 out double, followed by a double from Kailee Budicin,  her third hit of the game, scoring Pattison.  Jenny VanGeertry followed suit with a hard hit groundball up the middle, scoring Budicin to tie the game and also advancing to second on the throw to the plate.  That set the stage for Kelsey Marlow's second hit of the game, scoring VanGeertry and the game winner!  Congratulations Lightning!!

10U Wins 2013 Metros in convincing fashion.
The 10U Lightning came into Metros with high hopes of bringing home the 2013 ASA Chicago Metros 10U Title. And when it  was done they did not disappoint. The weekend did not start as they had planned losing in their first bracket game sending them to the losers bracket where it was all uphill from there. The Lightning went on to win 7 straight games in convincing fashion to get to the Championship where they would not have to beat their rival, The Bluewave, not once but twice. By the time the sun had set in Joliet the 10U Lightning had hammered the Bluewave in first game 16-7 and run ruled them 15-7 to secure the championship. Congratulations to the players, coaches, and families for making this one of those moments that none of us will ever forget. Special thanks to the 12U Lightning for making the 10U feel so special by giving them a shaving cream bath after their victory. (see championship pic)

16U JM Wins PGF National Qualifier & Showcase
The Lightning 16U JM team claimed the PGF Qualifier Championship  in Indianapolis and earned a berth to the PGF Nationals in Huntington Beach, Ca.  The team, already hit hard by injuries, had yet another, as Anne Allen was lost for bracket play.  However, this tough as nails group stepped up yet again with steely determination and a resolve to accomplish one of their season goals.  The tournament was characterized by great defense and pitching, as well as terrific offense, as the Lightning outscored their opponents 43-10.  On Sunday, the offensive story was the strength of the middle of the order, and was certainly capped off by Alyssa Spoerer's 3 home runs.  The Lightning met the Ohio Stingrays in the championship game, with Sarah Esposito scattering 5 hits, the team went on to an 8-2 victory to capture the tourney title.

4 out of 5 tournament wins for the 14U’s
All facets of the game were on full tilt as the 14U team came to play this weekend in East Peoria.  Our three headed ptching monster and errorless defense held the teams to 4 total runs throughout the entire tourney.  The Lightning went through the winner's bracket and were declared the winners when the rains rolled in and washed out the fields and the losers bracket finale.  The team averaged 9 runs a game through a variety of extra base hits and small ball execution. This is the team's 4th win in 5 tournaments and completed the "Quadfecta" with National bids to all four major organizations
