The Life Christian softball team took 1st place in the league and then continued to take the winning streak over to the championship tournament and took 1st place over 4 different leagues this past Saturday, August 14th. The tournament ended after 4 grueling games in the heat and humidity of the day. The final game started off slow, but the team pulled it together in the final 2 innings to claim the title by a slim margin of 4 runs.
LCC is so proud of this team. Throughout the season there were plenty of times to get out of the fruit and let a ref or another team really have it…however, this team decided up front and prior to the season even starting that they were not going to be like every other team. No matter if there was a bad call, an error in the field, a loudmouthed opponent or a change in the line-up…LCC softball team took it all in stride and didn’t let anything get to them and trigger a bad attitude or negative approach. This is what winning is all about. This is where God shows up for people. When people refuse to give in to turmoil or difficult situations and keep a positive attitude, God shows up. This team deserved what they received and God shined His light on them this season. What an example this team has been. Please take a moment, when you see the teammates of LCC’s softball team, to stop and let them know how much you appreciate them and their great ethics and character throughout the season.
Winning isn’t everything…but it sure feels good!!! Thank you Jesus for such an injury free and spectacular season!
