Your Carolina Cardinals Nationals 16u had a great year (by most standards). We finished ranked top 8 by the US Club Rankings 2019 – 16u. We finished top 15 by FloSoftball Fab 50 16u Club Rankings. For most teams that would be enough. We aren’t done. Our players are hungry. We want and expect more! 2020 – we are coming in hot!
With an undefeated 6 – 0 record, your Carolina Cardinals Nationals 16u team is the first ever 16u PGF North Carolina State Champions! We played some talented teams and left it all on the field. We had several injuries on our team, but with our talented roster we were able to pull it through. Thank you Premier Girls Fastpitch for a well run tournament. A special shout out to Icess Tresvik on her homerun and to Amanda Ahlin for an outstanding weekend at the plate and defensively!

We would like to thank USA Softball and Got Game softball for a really well run tournament. Next up… Scenic City in Chattanooga, TN.
With some of the best teams from all over the East coast, your Lady Lightning Gold Futures stepped up and went undefeated to become the USA Elite Select Tarheel Classic Champions, with a 7 – 0 record.

Fielding, pitching, hitting, running – they just all came together. Next up – the 16U USA NC State tournament
