Metamora Flames

The Metamora Flames 16U battled tough weather and tougher teams at the annual Chatham Chilloween at Chatham Spartan Park over the November 6-7, 2021 weekend to take home the title. Despite blistering cold temps and a fierce wind, Lainey Klokkenga and Addi Pacha were strong on the mound, getting plenty of help from behind the plate from Sophia Eaton and Lexi Cottingham who controlled the run game. Great team defense coupled with timely hitting and strong base running enabled the Flames to finish with a 5-0 record, claiming their second championship of the fall. The girls survived two extra-inning games on their way to winning the championship on a walk-off sacrifice-fly. Team members include (back, from left) Ellie Schaffer, Brianna Bessert, Karagan Hartnett, Lexi Cottingham, Gracie Glaub, Sophia Eaton, Kennedy Nee; (front, from left) Liv Vaughan, Mya Brock, Addi Pacha, Lauren Riddle and Lainey Klokkenga.
