As a former reporter for the Mauldin Varsity Softball program, I just
want to say a hearty and heartfelt  "Thanks" to all of the Coaches, the
players, the parents, and the friends of the Lady Mavs who have made up the
FAMILY that I have so richly and greatly enjoyed the last 5 years !  First
and foremost, I have been, am, and will continue to be a proud Fan of the
Mauldin High Softball program.  It has been an honor and a privilege to
have been able to announce and write about the game and the girls that I
cannot help but love and appreciate for their spirit, grace, heart,
dedication and talent.  Thanks to all of you who have supported and
encouraged me, and much moreso and importantly, who have supported and
encouraged my daughter during the past half decade.

      Under clear blue evening skies that turned into a still and cloudless
night, the young Mauldin Varsity Softball team's exciting season came to an
abrupt and bittersweet end Monday night at Clayton Field at the hands of
arch-rival Hillcrest 1-3.  It was an elimination game in the Upper State
playoff bracket of the 4A State Championship tournament.  The top 8 teams
in the state were in action on this night and for two of those Elite teams,
their seasons would be over.  The Hillcrest Lady Rams (20-9, District 3
Champions) entered this game after having been drubbed by JL Mann (District
4 champs) in the opening round, 10-0.  Mauldin (26-3, Region and District 2
Champions) limped home from Boiling Springs after suffering a
mistake-filled and offensively meager loss at the hands of the Lady
Bulldogs (District 1 Champs), 2-3.

    ... 2 outs, bottom of the 8th, bases empty, Boiling Springs best hitter -
2010 All-State outfielder Alaynie Page (who had earlier doubled) at the
plate...With one pitch and swing, the 2-2 tie was broken and the game over
in favor of the Lady Bulldogs after the solo homerun.  It was a bitter pill
to swallow, and probably could have been avoided...but having said that,
averting a walk-off homer in the 8th is not the same as winning....and the
Lady Mavs had opportunities to change the complexion of the game that they
failed to capitalize on long before the bottom of the 8th.

      As the Sun settled behind the trees in Spring Valley, The coaches
exchanged lineup cards and met with the rotated umpiring crew at the plate
before the District 2 Championship Final.  For Mauldin's Coach Joseph Terry
there would be no lineup changes, but there were questions to be answered
after the roller-coaster emotional game his charges had just won...Could
his team match their 11 hit performance of the first game ?  Would his
infield's uncharacteristic error woes continue into the second game ?  Did
his pitcher have enough left in the tank to match her brilliant 12 K
performance of the previous game ?  Without all of those answers, Coach
Terry won the toss and thus his would be the Home team in the
Winner-take-all District Final.  But where was Amanda ?  This answer didnt
take long - even Aces have to pee !
     As Miss Storch ran to the circle and toed the rubber for the top of
the first, several of the unknowns would begin to gather evidence of
clarity.  She struck out the Lady Viking lead-off batter that had tallied
three hits in the first game.  A fine play by Sophomore third baseman
Brianna Davis to Madison Tracey at first lit up the second out light on the
scoreboard, and the A-Train struck out the big first baseman again to send
the possibly shell-shocked Lady Vikes on defense in the opening frame.

      The showdown for the District 2 Championship was set for Wednesday
evening at 5:30
at Spring Valley High School.  Mauldin Varsity Softball
team lost their right to host the Finals by virtue of a (lack of) offensive
performance against the Lady Vikings of Spring Valley 4 days earlier.  Thus
the Mauldin Softballers got on the bus after lunch and 1/2 day of school
and travelled to Richland County, North of Columbia under clear blue skies.
The Lady Mavs arrived at the Dormanesque campus and walked beside the
arched brick colonnades of the football stadium overlooking the large but
less architecturally post-modern softball field.  Not only did the young
Mavericks need to exact revenge upon the Lady Vikings for the earlier 1-0
defeat, but they would need to defeat them twice to claim the District
crown which had been earned by this team's predecessors in each of the past
three years. To be successful Mauldin would have to continue to play the
good defense and get the excellent pitching performances they had ridden to
this point, but they would have to hit more consistently as a team than
they had in their previous 4 games.
