The program was started by Bob Martin and Ed Serdar to help HS girls prepare for softball in HS and college in 1978. The original team was all HS girls and we played in Women’s Open competition. We never heard of youth softball. In 1983 we played our first youth ASA tournament and finished 2nd in the Chicago Metro, and third in the Midwest regional. After several years we started the 16U team, then the 14U, and then the 12U and 10U.
We practiced and played our games at Plainfield HS, Joliet St. Francis (now Joliet Catholic), Lockport HS, Providence HS, Lewis University, and in the late 80′s we found Stone City. We played there until 2005 when we temporarily moved to Joliet Catholic for the 2006 season. Then our new field was built in Minooka, we started there in the 2007 season.
