The Nevada Lightning 99 team put together a stellar performance at the Triple Crown Sports 14u World Series last weekend, hosted at Golden Eagle Regional Park.

The Reno-Sparks area softball team finished 7-2 in its four days of action, spanning from last Tuesday through Friday. The squad features four players from the Rail City. Katelyn Townsend, Rylee Retzer and Cami Moore will all be eighth graders at Shaw Middle School when the new school year tips off in less than two weeks. Another team member, Megan Lawson, is a Sparks resident and will soon be a freshman at either Bishop Manogue or Spanish Springs high school.

Lightning 99 was perfect in pool play, picking up four wins. It beat Knuckleheads, 10-4, and Case Batbusters, 10-3, in Tuesday’s pool action,. Then, in Wednesday’s pool play, it dumped the Central Cal Grizzlies, 8-1, before dispatching the Norcal Blast, 9-7.

It opened double-elimination gold bracket play Thursday with a 4-2 win over the San Diego Show before falling to the California Grapettes just, 7-4, hours later.

On Friday, it beat the SoCal Breakers99, 6-0, and Nemesis Elite Blue, 4-2, before losing to All-American Sports Academy, 6-3.

Two other Nevada Lightning teams, which are based in the Truckee Meadows, were perfect in pool play and advanced into the tournament’s top bracket (gold). Nevada Lightning 98 and Nevada Lightning Blue finished in a tie for 33.
