Over the weekend, they beat the Berkner team 10-1. To date, they’ve won 12 of 12 games and are ranked 85 nationally on this CBSsports-related stat site.

Team parent Steve Brown, whose daughter is one of several freshmen on the varsity team, says he’s seen some teams, but this one stands out.

“The coach, Kelly Baker and her assistant coaches have great experience and run a tight team … My family and I have been in the Lake Highlands area since ’96 (my daughter) has played on a number of good teams, but this team really has something special going on.”

The first game following spring break will be Friday March 23 at Forester Field versus Skyline.  After the jump, photos of coaches and junior varsity team members.
