Morton Mystics 16U softball

The Morton Mystics 16U softball team traveled to Jacksonville to play in the "Play the Turf" Tournament at Lenz Field on July 6-7.  The Mystics worked hard, earning a number one seed overall, winning their first five games while scoring 51 runs and giving up only three.  The championship game was their sixth game in a 28-hour period. Unfortunately, they ran out of steam and fell to a hard-hitting TriCounty Thunder team, 9-2. Team members include (front, from left) Kayla Wiedemann, Abby Winstead, Tressa Grisham, Chloe Thompson, Kyra Killion, (back, from left) Rylee Fischer, Ellie Lockwood, Emma Heath, Gabby DiGiallonardo and Emily Down. Not pictured are Lily Jones and Kaitlyn Juskiv. The team is coached by Cory Winstead, Marc Houghton and Jason Killion.
