ASA Metro Champions at 18U
The Lisle Slammer 18U team sweeps through the Chicago Metro ASA tournament winning free bid to the ASA Nationals! The 18U Slammers will be representing the Chicago Chapter of ASA with the Lisle Slammer name!
Tough tournament where team was down to 9 players at times due to injuries and those injured players were there to keep their team mates going. Coming from behind in a couple battles, this committed team of ladies hung together and battled through to not just win the tournament but to SWEEP it!
Looking to place well at Nationals for the Slammers!

The Slammers 18U team went on to win the overall tournament defeating that same Roselle Rockers team in the ultimate finals.
