Executive Board Elections
Congratulations to our three existing Board members who were up for re-election last night. All three were re-elected into their postions for another two year term. "Unopposed" ran a great campaign in the Vice President and Concession Stand Manager races, but Rich and Maggie prevailed.
Concession Stand Manager
Thank you to all those that ran and made the commitment to volunteer their time to make sure that our girls have a place to play softball. We could not do this without the wonderful volunteers of our league.

What An All Star Season!
All Stars have come to a close, but not before a tremendous amount of success. Every one of our girls fought hard to show the City, the Suburbs, the State and even the Midwest what EPGSL softball is all about.
The most success came from our 10U Green and our 16U teams. The 10U Green team lost their first game in the state tournament to River Forest putting them in "losers bracket". They had to fight back with seven, yes seven straight wins including beating the River Forest team twice by slaughter in the Championship games winning the Little League 8-10 year old Illinois State Championship.
Our 16U team, which was actually a mix of 14U and 16U players finished pool play at State in 2nd place and forced a rematch of the only loss they had in the tourney for the State Championship game. The girls put their loss the day before behind them and took charge, beating a very tough Tri-County team to win the Little League Senior Illinois State Championship. As State Champions, they went on to represent Illinois in the Little League Central Regionals in Byron Center, MI. Going 3-2 in the regionals, EPGSL was eventually eliminated from the tourney by the team from Iowa, finishing in 3rd place overall for the Central Region. The only two teams EPGSL lost to were the teams that finished #1 and #2 in the region. The champion of that tournament, the home team from Byron, MI, is currently 3-0 in pool play of the Little League Senior World Series in Delaware.
The 8U Green team won the EPGSL tournament and finished 2nd in Homewood with a strong showing in the Orland tournament as well.
The 10U Black team, The Killer B's, did not let being considered a B-team phase them as they had strong showings in each of their tournaments including a Championship in the Niles All Star Tourney. This is the first championship for an EPGSL B-team.
Our 8U Black and 12U teams gave it their all, but did not end up with any tournament championships. The girls all locked in some great all star experience which is sure to help them out in the future.
CONGRATS TO ALL OUR ALL STARS!
