2008 PWC Softball Tournament Champions
Wes (Senior Manager at PWC) getting the "victory water" poured on him!
Proudly holding up their well deserved trophy!
After competing in the tournament for 5 years, they finally won! They were estactic and completely speechless when they realized they won!
I was so thankful that I was able to be there for the win! Mom and Parker were back at the hotel napping. If Mom hadn't come I would have missed the championship win!
In my last blog I shared that they had won 2 out of 3 games on Friday's Round Robin. That night they got seeded 7 out of 30. Their first game was at 10:00 PM on Saturday. They played 4 games Saturday winning them all!

Sunday, they played for a spot in the winners bracket and got it! Their final game was against the defending champions, Tampa! (Who has won the last 3 years) ATL really wanted to beat them!) I am sure it was a huge dissappointment to Tampa, to lose. But, we are THRILLED for the Atlanta victory! I had nerves in my stomach the whole time of the championship game. I can only imagine how they were feeling!

Now they are responsible for the 2009 tournament. One of the rewards(but work) for winning the tournament is to run and host the next years tournament! Sounds like a blast to me!..All of a sudden, it is alot of work. (There are 30 teams and around 13 girls teams and each team has 12-13 ...so it is alot of people to host and plan an event for!) They will have to scout out great towns since next year is the 25th annual tournament!
I am already looking forward to the 2009 tournament!
I am proud of you Mike, and (your team) for winning!
Way to go ATL!
