Winning a playoff bracket is sweet, and when the championship game is against a crosstown rival, all the better.

Dan Muller's Lake Shore 12U softball team went 9-6 during the regular season in North County Community Girls Softball League play before reeling off three straight playoff wins — with the final win being an 18-8 victory over Havenwood at Rock Creek Park on June 10 — to win the consolation bracket tournament championship.

Lake Shore’s 12U squad comprised players Kelly Penkala, Colette Kendall, Hannah Muller, Maddie Thompson, Carrie Richardson, Olivia Thurston, Lauren Thurston, Alexis Wilkinson, Caitlyn Zabko, Rosie Levin and Malaya Campbell, and the team was coached by Dan Muller, Norm Thurston, Dustin Kendall and Heather Kelly.

In the championship win over Havenwood, Muller pitched three innings and recorded eight strikeouts, while Kendall was 3-for-3 with a walk, Penkala was 2-for-2 with two walks, Muller was 2-for-2 with two walks and Thurston was 3-for-3.

“The team as a whole showed up to play [in the consolation tournament],” said coach Muller. “Offensively and defensively the team improved game by game the whole season. The girls worked hard all season to improve.”
