Pine Tree Post | September 2013

The summer sports season has come to an end with some newsworthy success stories. Two rookies from the Place Under the Pines have made some waves in their respective sports. Both, by chance, having the #12 on the back of their jerseys.

On the soccer pitch, Super E recorded an unheard of 57 goals!!! He was very excited to start the season and it showed. Right from the get go Super E was always on that ball. His fancy footwork and pure determination often found him alone, racing down the field, on a breakaway (as seen in image 2). Many of his goals were netted this way. Still, even when he was not the one putting the ball in the back of the net he always seemed to be in the play every time Silver Team (The Silver Bullets as they are known on the street) scored.

Super E plans on playing again next year and is practicing his drop kick in the off season.

Awesome O, as she is called on the diamond, left her personal mark in the T-ball league this year. She took this individual centred game for a twist and brought in a strong team spin. She could be found gathering her team mate for a pregame run, or stretch in the nearby tree. She was Purple team's unofficial 'Team Cohesive Leader'. She was like glue, bringing all the parts of the team together. During games it often seemed as if she were encouraging others and 'keeping it loose' with her onfield chatter. Though not a powerhouse hitter, Awesome O did hit the ball and make it around the bases every single time she was up to bat. An amazing 1.000% batting average!!! Very impressive considering this was her first year ever holding a bat and catching grounders. 

Awesome O has decided to hang up her glove and leave on such a high note. Sadly, the game will not be the same without her.

Fielding for O also involved digging holes
