Super Series State tourney in Woodland Park was an interesting weekend. The weekend started with a drive through the Springs to Woodland Park. Our parents and players witnessed the start of what ended up being a very horrific fire in the state. The boys were able to play 3 pool games after finally being evacuated from the area on Sunday. Those 3 games were prosperous with victories in all. Based on successful pool play, the State title was awarded to BombSquad. Way to go boys!!!

Super Series Strike Gold Tournament was held on June 2 and 3. Only 4 teams were entered however BombSquad was able to face teams they have never seen before. Saturday wasn't too challenging as the boys pulled off 2 victories. Sunday they faced a 14 Majors team with an impressive record. The first game was pool play and BombSquad beat the Bulldogs. Due to single elimination, both teams would face each other in the championship round. Tight game all the way through but a couple of errors brought the boys up short for the victory.
BombSquad headed off to Woodland Park the weekend of May 26th and 27th for a wood bat tournament. Hosted by Super Series, this is the first time the boys have been in this type of tourney. Aluminum bat, wood bat....it doesn't matter to BombSquad. The boys came out with a weekend victory placing #1 in the tourney.
