The Branchburg Blaze Girls Fast-Pitch Softball organization celebrated their 10th year in 2012 and did so in a very big way. The Blaze had a roster of 36 girls over 3 different age groups. They played a continuous schedule from April – July.

Their 10 and Under Team (10u) went a record breaking 45 – 10 and won both their Spring and Fall League Championships. During the 55 game schedule they played in 7 tournaments. They Won 3, were Runners Up in 2 and Semi-Finalists in 2.

Their 12 and Under Team (12u) went an impressive 40-17-1, and won their Spring League Championship. They were a Semi-Finalist in their Summer League Championship. During their 58 game schedule they played in 8 Tournaments. They Won 1, were Runners Up in 1 and Semi-Finalists in 1.

Their 14 and Under Team (14u) went 20-18-2 during a rebuilding season that saw the majority of players in their first year. In spite of this, they improved upon their 2011 record including a strong 3rd place finish in their Spring League and were the Runner-Up in the ASA Fathers Day Tournament.

With only a 2 week break, The Blaze began tryouts for their 2012/2013 season in August. After a field of over 100 girls came through the tryouts, the final count was 5 teams and 60 girls to be playing next season.

The Blaze organization is based in Branchburg Township, NJ, and is supported by dedicated parents and coaches who saw the need to develop area talent in preparation, and as a feeder program, for high school softball and beyond. All of the organizers, coaches, and advisors are volunteers.
