Reno Pride entered the make-up week with two must win games into order to make the season ending tournament and they did just that to qualify for the tournament.
Tournament play begins on Wednesday, July 5, as Reno Pride takes on SNJCC Eagles (10-0) from the Friday night Co-Ed Novice league at 9:45 at Reno Sparks Complex Field 3. Depending on the outcome of the game Wednesday night, if Reno Pride moves forward they would play the winner of the Killing Me Smalls (7-3)/Burke Properties (8-2) on Thursday night at 7:35 pm at Reno Sports Complex, field 3. A loss and the season is over. Reno Pride is seeded eighth in the spring tournament while SNJCC is seeded second.
After defeating The Rejects 22-7 on Monday night, June 26 and second place LP Bat Attitudes, coming back from an 8 run deficient to a 11-9 victory Wednesday night, June 28, the team secured the final playoff spot from Monday Night league. The win earned the team its second appearance in the post-season tournament. In their first season Reno Pride made it to the tournament semi-finals.
Reno Pride finished the Monday Night Co-Ed Novice Softball league with a 6-4 record. Also making the play-off from the Monday night league were the Avengers (formerly the Original Christian Squad who also made it to the tournament semi-finals last season) (8-2) split their games with Reno Pride this season and LP Bat Attitude (7-3) lost both their regular season games to Reno Pride.
Reno Pride Sports, the new umbrella group for recreational sports, will have the Reno Pride Softball team again in the Co-Ed Novice league but playing on Friday nights instead of Monday. For more information visit their Facebook page: Reno Pride Sports.
