Metamora Regional Championship

Per a tweet by Adam Duval ........ Metamora is your Class 3A regional champion. The Redbirds beat Notre Dame, 11-1 in 6 innings.

:shock: .... Wow, that's ugly!!

For the second yr in a row the 7th place team in the mid illini beat a 3A ranked PND sotball team. Either pnd is over hyped each year, or, the Mid Illini is just that much better than the MS4(WB12?)!!!

Or was PND worn out after their Madden Cruiser broke down and they had to walk to the game? :twisted:
I favor capital punishment. But there are alot of cases where I don't think capital punishment applies (parking violations) and cases where it should be applied (murder, child molestation, illegal HS football recruiting).- BirdWatcher

Didn't PND lose their pitching Ace to an ACL tear a bit ago?

PNC was not ranked in the 5/25/2015 poll and think they fell out of rankings earlier in the season. They did lose their starting pitcher early in the season with knee injury and were pitching two freshman who had very little pitching experience.

I think the key words were "very little pitching experience". I don't know how much experience or success the PND freshman pitchers have had over the years, but it is a tough spot to put any freshman in.

Sometimes freshman do come into high school with a wealth of pitching experience from travel leagues, so I also don't think it is shocking to see a freshman battery do well like MTHS.

Obviously, when PND lost their ace, it hurt them tremendously as it would with most teams. It seems some people were just trying to explain why PND struggled near the end of the year and not to take away any other team's success.

I sincerely hope no one was truly offended by PND taking a charter bus to games. If anyone would like a clarification on why, I would be happy to explain the reason.

That is exactly what I meant jmc. I was first trying to clarify that ND was not a ranked team other than pre season ranking, so statement that MId-Illi Team beat a ranked ND team 2nd year in a row was not correct. Secondly, someone made comment that ND Ace tore ACL and was just stating that was case and that they had to very inexperienced freshman pitchers that were now pitching. I'm not specific fan for any team just like softball and was trying to keep the facts straight. I guess there are some people on here that have some sensitivity issues concerning this subject.
