“The team rolled through Saturday undefeated but came out a little flat on Sunday,” said Coach Travis Hudson. “This is a first year 14-under team so they are young and are making great strides at improving their game.”
Hudson praised the effort of Berkeley’s Kinsey Hutto as a real team leader and St. John’s Clair e Gilmore who hit .417 for the Sumter tournament and hit a two-run homer.
The Extreme hit .353 as a team for the Sumter tournament, and .356 for the summer travel ball season.
During the Sumter tournament, Brooklynn Stueness and Ally Hardee led the Extreme, each hitting at a .500 clip and
Hope Glover hit .455.
The Extreme features players from Berkeley, Summerville, SJCA, Dorchester Academy, Laurence Manning Academy, Stratford and Cane Bay.
