Special to the Tribune

Universal Fastpitch 03 Nilson, sponsored by Universal Sports Academy in Martinez, took the championship win at the ASA Memorial Day Classic in Roseville on May 30.

What a weekend these girls had. They played nine games total with great defensive playing, nine home runs, incredible pitching and a lot of awesome base running to end with a championship win.

The girls played in temperatures ranging from 93-100 degrees Saturday through Monday, and we are all so proud of them. What an incredible team we have – from the players, coaches Troy Nilson, Ruben Vasquez and Vic Sample, to our amazing families. Without the parents, weekends like this would not happen so we thank each and every one of you!

Way to go UPF 03!
