9U Tournament Team Finishes Strong
Over five thrilling days, from June 21 - 25, teams from Fairfield, Ridgefield, Rowayton, Trumbull, and Wilton converged on Dougiello Field and Sturges Park to determine bragging rights in the 9U Fairfield County Little League Softball Tournament. In the end, the team from Trumbull won 3 games on Sunday to earn the championship, defeating a tough Fairfield squad in the final.
Fairfield finished the tournament with 3 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie. Our girls impressed the visiting towns, with many coaches commenting on how much they enjoyed playing Fairfield because they played hard and played smart, but always looked like they were having fun.
Congratulations to all the girls of the 2017 9U Tournament team: Caroline Branscombe, Lindsay Carozza, Francesca Colangelo, Caitlin DeBernardis, Leah Encarnacion, Gianna Grant, Patty Greene, Emma Heitzman, Amelia Johnson, Sophia Mozolewski, Angelina Tavella, Allie Tournas, Ellie Valentino, and Eva Vergara.
And a big thank you to the volunteer coaching staff: Manager Steve DeBernardis, Coach Matt Colangelo, and Coach Chris Mozolewski.

It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you pose for the team photo that matters.
8U Tournament Team Sparkles on the Diamond
Getting their first taste of tournament play, Fairfield's 8U Tournament Team came ready to play. They swept through pool play, finishing as the 2nd seed. Unfortunately, they ran into a game Westport team in the semifinals and lost in what is believed to have been THE MOST EXCITING 8 YEAR OLD GAME EVER. The girls took the loss in stride, and gained valuable experience that will serve them well in the years ahead.
Congratulations to all the players of the 2017 8U Tournament Team: Lauren Carroll, Kate Czarkowski, Sophie Kresser, Chloe McDonald, Grace Mollica, Caroline Morris, Luna Prom, Mary Roarty, Lauren Santa Barbara, Chloe Shea, Casey Sterner, Sadey Strauser, and Zoey Strauser.
And big thanks to the volunteer coaching staff: Manager Nora Shea, Coach Terry Carroll, and Coach Tom Czarkowski.
Allie Encarnacion is FLLGS's volunteer of the week. Allie came to Dougiello to watch her sister Leah play in the 9U Tournament, and while there offered to help her mother volunteer in the concession stand. She had so much fun selling snacks and drinks, and cooking up hot dogs, burgers, and BECs (bacon egg and cheese sandwiches) that she stayed for over 5 hours!
With the "training" Allie got this weekend, she is looking forward to starting at Woods Middle School this fall where she can show off her cooking skills in her Consumer Science class (Home Economics to the older folks among us).
