Thunder Summer Season
After a 3 month hiatus for high school ball, 16U Marlton Thunder Red looks to build on an exciting fall season, productive winter sessions, and a busy high school season. Our one Thunder event this spring was participating in the "A" level grouping of the 16U level at Marlton's Annual Thunder Storm played at Westerly Field on April 14, 2013. Thunder Red took 2nd place in the 1-Day Friendly while missing 5 key players.
The summer tournament season will include about 30 games through July. The entire team from the fall is returning, plus we've added Missy Dow, a pitcher from Sterling High School, and Jules Vannella, a former Thunder catcher who attends Seneca High School. All 14 players played high school ball with the majority playing for Cherokee. Every player saw time at the varsity level though most of our players are freshmen.
Thunder Red will open up on the road in the Lehigh Valley Classic in Allentow, PA. We will play in two College Showcases this summer, and we're booked every weekend in June and July.
Come out and cheer us on!
