2018 Conklin Raiders Gold

Season in Review

Fall ball seems far in the past…and winter sessions seem like so long ago! It certainly does all happen so quickly! And now, our summer season is already over. 


Reviewing our summer season, WOW is what comes to mind looking at some of our team’s accomplishments. We played 50 games this season, with only 17 losses versus some of the top teams in the country. In that, we played the 2017 PGF National Champion, 2017 ASA Gold National Champion, and Triple Crown #1, #5, and  #8 team in the country. In addition, we also played 10 teams in the TCS National Top 50. Ladies, you improved every single game, even against the top talent. Great Job! 


We also had some incredible individual stats. We had a Raider pitcher throw nearly a perfect game twice.  Also, 3 one hit games and 4 complete game shutouts. Good Stuff! We had another player hit three homeruns in a game! Nice Job! 


Our team as a whole hit 39 homeruns this summer. That’s a lot of dingers! 


All in all, it was an outstanding season, but it couldn’t have been so without our two seniors, Chloe Van Gorder and Mariah Culver. Raiders Forever! I want to express my deepest gratitude. You were a large part of the team’s overall success, as well as the overall development of our younger players. Remember what Coach E says, “It’s not about the journey, it’s the destination that counts.” Well if that’s true, Stony Brook and Caldwell are up next! Good luck in college and thank you for finishing your Raider journey with us!


The Right Way. The Only Way. The Raider Way!
