Housekeeping! We had a bit of an oops with our website, so the content isn’t as minty fresh as we’d like it to be. 🙂 We’re working on it, but in the meantime, our FB Page, ROMSAORG, is up-to-date as is our Twitter Feed. You’ll find the links on our menu.

The year started with a rigorous tryout evaluation which started out with approximately 80-100 kids, and which we managed to whittle down to the “chosen 9”: Team 2 Raymond’s.
Well that’s not really what happened, but it sounds way more awesome. 🙂 ….. continued

We had nearly half the team as new players and it was great to see them all learn and improve as the season went on. Our returning players really helped the new players and improved their own play a lot. We had our best two games of the season on elimination day of the year-end tournament – 2 big wins that helped them get to the semi-finals. The girls went wild as we got the last out of the second game – what fun! The tournament along with a couple off-field team get-togethers really helped solidify friendships and will bring the girls back next year for more softball fun. Thank you to all the umpires and volunteers – it was a super fun season!
