Lighting finish as champs in Boise

The Union County Lightning 10-and-under softball team emerged as champions at the Boise Blast/Idaho Sporting Goods Shootout tournament over the weekend, beating the Idaho Sliders twice to win the championship.

With the tournament played under a double elimination format, the Lightning had to beat the Sliders twice to take home the title since the Sliders did not lose in bracket play. The Lightning took home the title after playing seven games in two days. Head coach Kat Naughton said she was proud of her girls for playing four games on Sunday with only 10 minutes to rest in between each game.

“The girls showed so much grit and determination over the weekend,” Naughton said. “Playing four games on Sunday with very little time to rest was definitely the hardest part of the tournament.”

The Lightning went 1-1 on Saturday in pool play before beating the Boise Blast by a 6-3 margin to open double elimination bracket play.

“The girls did a great job of holding and maintaining their intensity,” Naughton said. “It was a very difficult task for them to take on, and they gave an outstanding effort. I think they grew up a lot both as players and as people over the weekend.”

The Lightning have now won two tournaments on the season after having also won the Angels Invite in the Tri Cities and also finished second at the Walla Walla, Wash. Sweet Onion Tournament.

Naughton’s girls will be back in action this weekend, as they will aim to win the Oregon Amateur Softball Association 10-and-under state championship July 4-6 in Beaverton.
