The ICE Silver 10U team continues a winning tradition.

The ICE Fastpitch Softball organization hosted the third annual Ice Breaker tournament. They welcomed teams from around Michigan to participate.

ICE Silver represented the organization by going undefeated and taking home the championship trophy.

The team outscored their opponents 52-8 over the five game span including a 3-0 shutout in the championship game against Motor City Madness from Novi.

Highlights from the tournament included Abbey Barta shutout performance in pitching. She struck out six and only allowed two hits during the championship game. Her teammates held defense with key plays to stop their opponents. One of them was Hannah Workman with a diving catch in the outfield that saved two runs from scoring.

Motor City Madness held their own as a tough opponent. They only allowed a total of three hits to Abbey Tolmie, Hannah Cady, and Barta.

Coaches Holly Workman, Scott Tolmie, and Bill Wycoff didn't let it deter them though.

As soon as ICE players reached the bases due to hits or walks, they were going to get them home anyway possible.

With solid base running Cady, Samantha Hackman, and Samantha Wycoff were able to score the only runs the team would need to seal the victory.

This tournament was the first one on the ICE Silver schedule this season.

The bar has definitely been set high and ICE Silver 10U welcomes the challenges for the rest of the season.

ICE Silver 10U is a travel softball team based in Clarkston. For more information about ICE Softball, please contact Holly Workman, coach for ICE Silver 10U or Paul Workman, coach for ICE Black 9U, through the organization's team website www.icefastpitch.net.
