Lower Swatara Athletic Association’s Yospa 10U Fastpitch Softball team finishes runner-up

Posted

The Lower Swatara Athletic Association’s Yospa 10U Fastpitch Softball team took runner-up in the East Shore Fastpitch League.

Despite an up-and-down season, the team was good enough to overcome the weather, injuries, and illnesses to go 7-5 and earn the final seed in their playoff bracket.

Not only was the team the lowest seed, their first playoff game was against the number one-ranked team (also out of the LSTAA, the Kahler team) who had beaten them earlier in the regular season. However, the girls pulled off the upset to advance to the next round.

That win set up another rematch with Hershey, which had been another regular season defeat for Lower Swatara. Once again the girls avenged the earlier defeat to advance to the title game, this time facing yet another regular season opponent again, in East Hanover.

There the magic ran out, but coach Lenny Yospa was pleased with how the team had grown and the progress they had shown at the season’s conclusion.

“I’m proud of how they had all done by the end of the season” Yospa said.
