16U Showcase


The US Club Rankings for Softball just came out this week.  This is the first time we’ve ever had a Spikes team ranked.  Not only ranked, but in the top 100 nationally.  These rankings are used in the selection process across the country to accept teams into their tournaments and showcase events.  US Club Rankings are the most valid and inclusive rankings platform;  using tournament finishes from all governing bodies, coaches’ opinion polls, and college placement information.

Congratulations to the Wheatland Spikes and the 16u Showcase Team coached by Bill Chval and Randy Briesath.
