Gold team participates in the Nationally-acclaimed Sun Classic held in Orlando, FL @ the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex
Nov 8, 2013, 5:26 pm
Greetings to all in the Cuda Nation, just wanted to report on the Gold team's trip to Florida and their participation in the Fall Sun Classic where there were hundreds of teams participating and over 250 college coaches in attendance.
The Barracuda Gold team ended up with a 3-2 record and enjoyed the presence of many college coaches at several of their games.
We started off the weekend on Friday morning at the ESPN fields and played a team from the Palm Beach Gardens area called the Gators. Had a 2-2 game going into the 4th inning, but ran into a tough inning and ended up losing 10-3. After this first game we had a one game break and then played a North Carolina-based team called the Lady Lightning. We were shut out for the first time all fall and lost 6-0. The Lightning outfield was about as fast as lightning as it seemed that everything we hit out there was caught on some very good efforts by their speedy outfielders.
On Saturday we righted the ship and went 2-0 against a Virginia team (Virginia Glory) and a New Jersey team (Witches Gold). We had our bats warmed up for the Virginia team and won that game handily by a score of 10-2. Against the Witches Gold we pulled out a come-from-behind victory, 4-3 and managed to get the game in just before the heavens opened up and rain-delayed the rest of the tourney that day.
On Sunday we ended on a high note against another New Jersey team (Cheetahs) and wallopped them by a score of 15-0.
Great 2013 season for the Gold team!!
We learned a bunch about the level of competition we need to prepare for at this tourney and we are looking forward to the 2014 Sun Classic!!

Barracuda Black outscored their opponents 59-16 during last weekend's showcase! The bats were hot, especially on Saturday when they hit 7 homeruns including 4 from Mackenzie Helgerson!
Great season, Ladies... way to end it very strong!!!

The Barracuda Gold team played 5 games in St. Louis during the Oct. 25-27 session @ Chesterfield Athletic Complex just off I-64 in the outskirts of St. Louis while the World Series was being played in the heart of downtown.
The Cudas managed a nice 4-0-1 record against 5 solid teams: Indy Dreams (W:3-2); Naperville Diamonds (W:6-3); Homer Hawks (T: 5-5); Esprit (W: 10-1) and Tean Kansas Gold (W: 3-1).
The Cudas won their pool and thus qualified for a berth in the PGF Midwest Championships in July of 2014.
Congrats to the Cuda Gold players!!
Now, on to Orlando, FL and the Sun Classic from Nov. 1-3!

The Eastern IA Barracudas are getting ready for another successful season in 2013! The Barracuda Gold team has held tryouts and is currently finalizing its roster for 2013. That will set a strong foundation and lead for the other Barracuda teams that will be announced throughout the coming months.
For the Spring and in preparation for the Iowa high school season, you'll surely see at least two Barracuda teams assembled for most weekends. As those schedules are finalized, you can check back here for updates and to find out where the Barracudas are playing.
