The incredible Jackson Tigers finished the 2014 season with two no-hitters in the league-ending tournament, winning the championship of the Juniors Division of the Amador County Girls Softball Association. The Jackson Tigers went a perfect 12–0 for the season, outscoring their opponents, 151 to 33, with a team batting average of .640. Lauryn “LB” Bierman led the team with a batting average of .857, barely outdoing Keilawnee “Chewy” Landergen and her stellar average of .824. Other stupendous offensive contributions came from Riley “Brady” Hannah, with a three-run home run in the last game of the season and Donna Jo “DJ” Dalton with two doubles.

Without a doubt, the meat and potatoes of the Jackson Tigers’ defense was the astonishing pitching. The pitching duo, Kasey White and Allie “Deuce” Olivarria, mowed batters down all season long. White had 47 strikeouts, 35 walks and an ERA of 4.66 in 18 innings pitched. Olivarria had 54 strikeouts, 24 walks and an ERA of 1.50 in 21 innings pitched. The Juniors Division ages range between 9 and 12 years old. Both of these young girls are only 10 years old.

The next endeavor for most of these girls is the U10 Frozen Ropes Travel Ball Team. The team is made up of girls 10 years and under composed of the best players in the Amador County Girls Softball Association. The U10 Frozen Ropes will be traveling to Livermore, Davis and Rancho Cordova to match their abilities in tournaments against teams from all over the state. There will be more tournament dates to come, if funding is available.

Good luck, Frozen Ropes.
