The Meridians hit 150 wins!

A weekend sweep with 2 wins in 2 states - an easy one in NKy (6/8) and a come-from-behind, 7th inning rally (6/9) puts us at 150 wins early in 2013.   Returning to the CRC while maintaining a schedule in the NKABL as well, we hit 125 wins in the home stretch of the 2011 season (7/31).

100 wins: A great maiden voyage in the NKABL sees us at 13-1 after our first August game (8/2) of the summer.   After a rain-shortened 2007 season (6 games played), the Meridians get back to it in 2008 and then dominate most of 2009 in the new league.

With a shutout and enforcing the 10-run rule in the same game, the Meridians reach 75 wins in the final game (10/15) of the 2006 season.   We play in only 1 tournament and average less than 20 league games per year so a good feat in 5 short seasons.

With a 2-1 victory over the Hilltoppers on our Opening Day (5/22) and sweeping the Outlaws the next weekend (5/29), the Meridians hit 50 wins early in the 2005 season.
