Skills clinics, drills and lots of practices are paying off for the three Syosset Cyclones teams in the Travel Division of SYAC Girls Softball.
The U10 Cyclones came up big in competition against the Bellmore Blue Fire, with 12-2 and 19-1 victories on Sunday, Sept. 30. The Cyclones had their hitting shoes on as they pounded out big home runs and were speedy on the basepaths. The team is 6-0 for the season and leading the U10 division of the East Meadow Fall Classic.
The U9 squad lost a close one to the Long Island Hellcats in Oyster Bay. The Cyclones out-hit their competition and made the game exciting, as the girls showed improvement in both pitching and batting. The team is 2-2 in the Rocky Pacent League.
The U12 squad, which is 4-2 for the season, had a bye this past week. In addition to the travel program, SYAC Girls Softball hosts a spring community softball program for girls. For more information: www.SYACGS.org.
