Following a regular season that produced an 8-5 record, the Havenwood Red Robins 10U softball team surged to a 4-0 playoff run to capture the championship of the North County Community Girls Softball League consolation tournament by defeating the Broadneck Lady Bruins 16-11 in the championship game at Severn Danza Park on June 17.

Havenwood’s 10U’s were the final team standing in the 16-team, single-elimination tournament after winning by forfeit over Severna Park and notching victories over the Havenwood Blue Bahamas and Elvaton Lazers before winning over Broadneck in the championship game.

Pitchers Hana Pierce and Tatum Isaacs; catchers Sydnee Furrow and Athena Dyer; first basemen Ariana Nicklas and Joiya Licavoli; second basemen Haydan Aisquith, Madison Weibe and Teigan Kelly; shortstops Brynn Jones and Jenna Fosdal; third basemen Alex Christe, Madison Bryant and Janele Young; and a roster-wide rotation through the outfield gave the Red Robins a solid defense, and the team scored a whopping 50 runs in three playoff wins to come out on top of the tournament.

A 16-11 second-round win over their rival Havenwood Blue Bahamas at Rock Creek Park gave the Havenwood Red Robins the confidence they needed to win it all, said head coach Dan Aisquith.

“[That win] gave the girls the confidence that they could beat any team in the tournament,” said Aisquith, who coached the team with assistant coaches John Jones, Joe Bryant and Erin Kelly.

Pierce made an early-morning return from a planned family trip to the Poconos to pitch in the championship game, pitching well and helping her team to victory, which Aisquith said buoyed the team with a show of dedication and commitment.

The team finished the year 12-5 after its 4-0 playoff run.

“The girls came together at the beginning of the year as 14 different girls, all with different softball abilities and all at different skill levels,” said Aisquith. “They fought together as one unified team throughout the entire season. They stuck it out through four very hot days for the tournament to eventually win the championship. The improvements that most of these girls showed were really present. Fourteen girls came together to create one really good overall softball team.”
