Welcome to the 14u team page. The 14u Ice Team is managed by Randy Justin.
14u takes 1st place at the USSSA NIT in East Peoria 6/28/15
14u earns Runner up in 16u B NSA World Qualifier.
14u is made up of three seventh graders and nine eight graders. That's ten 13 year olds and two 14 year olds. 14u was forced into a 16u age group at the last minute. The team lost their first three pool games taking a 4th seed and were disappointed, however once they realized they had the talent to compete at the 16u level they went to work Sunday morning and knocked out a #1 seed KC Crush 6-5. As momentum began to build for this young team they faced the JSA Express a #2 seed and was able to pull off another win 6-5. The ICE continued to send home top performing teams with forcing international tie breaker and made it to the championship game. The girls played their hearts out but fell 3-2. With Attitude, Will and Desire, you can accomplish anything. Great job girls!

Family and friends of the Ice family showed up in droves for the 2nd annual Spaghetti Dinner held on Febuary 28th at the Crestwood Biela Center. Everyone enjoyed the all you can eat Spaghetti, meatballs, live Band, dancing and raffles. Each team worked hard to put a basket together to raffle off. All the Raffle winners love there Ice Baskets. especially the $800.00 diamond earrings give away by the 14U team.
The 16 u Teams step up their game in the guest invite game. Jalyn Stepney and Jill Ackermann both received a New Xeno. In the Ice Meatball competition the Graffeo family was unsitted by the Buis Family . The judges had a hard time picking one meatball because everyone did a great job cooking their best family recipe. The Buis family deserves high praise for their award winning meatball and will be up to the challenge next year. A side note Jenna Haase tied with coach Bill for second place. She has been working very hard to take home the meatball challenge Campionship. This is the 3rd time in a row she has taken 2nd place.
The Blend had another strong performance while pleasing all ages with their smooth Rock'n Roll!!
A BIG THANKS go out to the Spaghetti Dinner Committee, All The Sponsers, all the Ice teams and Parents of the players that made this a great event!!!
Hope to see you next year!!!
