Thunder fastpitch (tuck) 14U

The 2013 season was a time of development and fine tuning the girls’ fielding and batting techniques. These growing teenage girls were grateful for the upgraded Nike uniforms and equipment. The success of an athlete are made up of components like: skill, coaching, equipment, and athletic ability.

Team bonding

These girls have built strong bonds and friendships over the last 3 years of playing together. They celebrate the good times, get through the tough times and laugh each other out of a mental slump. Softball has taught them the importance of being strong physically and mentally. These girls walk through teenage life with confidence.

Thunder 96 Lends a Helping Hand while at Tourney

Team Dedication-Sydney Angle
Team Dedication-Sydney Angle

In May 2013, the town of Moore, Oklahoma and surrounding areas were struck by a devastating EF5 tornado. Winds reached 210 miles per hour and the twister stayed on the ground for 39 minutes, destroying homes, businesses and 2 public elementary schools. Twenty-four people lost their lives and 377 were injured that terrible day.

 One of those killed was a 9 year-old girl named Sydney, a third-grader at Plaza Towers Elementary School, and a softball player with "Bring It" a local ASA softball team. In addition to the loss of their child, the Angle family home was destroyed in the storm, leaving Sydney's parents, sister and brother without shelter.

Oregon Thunder '96 was scheduled to travel to Okalahoma City in June for the Hall of Fame National Qualifier Tournament and felt the call to help the Angle family. Our Thunder family and friends raised $860 in donations for the Angles. The Thunder girls now wear decals on their batting helmets with the state of Okalahoma and Sydney's #35 in her memory. Thunder girls and families visited the site of Plaza Towers Elementary, Syndey's school, and were awed by the total devastation that we witnessed, but were also touched by the unity of the community and work being done to clear out the rubble, rebuild and restart their lives.  The rest of the Thunder 96 season has been dedicated to Sydney's memory.

During the teams time in Oklahoma City they also played in the Hall of Fame softball tournament where they earned a berth for the USA/ASA National tournament. They leave next week to participate in this tournament in San Jose, California with 138 teams from around the nation.

Davis HR Lifts Tech Over Vanguard, 5 Bombs Takes Out Arizona Christian, Blanks Menlo

02.09.2013

REDDING, Calif. – Freshman Alyssa Davis put the Owls on the board with a 1st Inning two-run homerun, while senior hurler Taylor Schmidt held Vanguard University to a single run as ninth-ranked Oregon held on for a 2-1 victory in game 1 of the Simpson University Tournament.  Five Homeruns would push the Owls to a 9-1 win over Arizona Christian in game 2, while Schmidt returned to the circle in game 3 and hurled a four-hit shutout helping Tech to a three-game sweep on the day.

The three victories today improve the ninth-ranked Owls to 5-1 to start the 2013 campaign.

Schmidt picked up her first win in the circle on the season as the senior struck out five and walked none versus VU in game 1.

Tech recorded just three hits with Davis’ second homerun of the season being enough run support for the Owls.  Shauna Collins scored a run after a 1st inning single, while Sara Coates was the only other Owl with a single in the game. 

Way to Go Alyssa, your Thunder Family is very proud.
