FAIRFIELD COUNTY — Pressure makes diamonds, and the Fairfield County Pink Diamonds played well under pressure all year, securing a regular season championship.
“We were undefeated,” said assistant coach Carla Thompson.
The girls softball team finished their regular season with a 6-0 record, and placed second in an end of the season tournament.
“We were regular season champs, and we were runner-ups in the tournament,” Thompson said.
The Pink Diamonds won their first tournament game, but lost to the Newberry Wildcats by a single run in the championship game.
“I told them, they did good,” Thompson said. “They played hard.”
Thompson said she hopes the successful campaign encourages future participation in the recreational softball league.
“I want us to get bigger and better,” Thompson said.
Members of the Pink Diamonds included Alexis Ashford, Moesha Boyd, LaQuaja Chappell, Jameka Henderson, Tameeya Owens, Zanayah Owens, Kavona Rice, Mikeisha Smith, Sania Walker and Tameshia Woodard.
The Fairfield County Pink Diamonds were coached by Javaris and Tavaris Cook.
