Playing In College

Kat At Limestone from Tony Tate on Vimeo. Yesterday, I saw Kat play with her new college team, the Limestone Saints. She was definitely in her element. It was a Round Robin, fall games designed to get the team into playing outside opponents. The team looked really good. I think they will have a great…

Graduation!

I never updated what was happening with the end of the softball season. There was really nothing to report. We made it to the first round of the playoffs and lost to Dutch Fort high school. Then we lost again to Wando. The Byrnes Rebels finally won the State Championship. Now for more joyous news….

Playoffs

The Lady Knights enter playoff play this week in Columbia, SC. ¬†Ashley Ridge were the regional winners this year. They have a really good team. Stratford didn’t do terribly this year, but were unable to bring it all together. There were games they should have won but didn’t. But to say they had a losing…

James Island Falls

We are still struggling. It just so happens that James Island struggled more than we did tonight. We have a very young pitcher who will one day be a great threat in high school. She’s only an 8th grader right now, and she already shows promise for this season. However, the pitcher position is one…

Finally

We won against Wando tonight, ending our 3 game losing streak. Final score was 11-3. Hopefully we will continue to win. Our next game is against James Island. We play at home at 7:00 pm.

Struggling

We have lost the last 2 games in a row to Ft. Dorchester and Summerville. WE really need our get our act together. We are still making a lot of errors. We will have to do considerably better in order to make the playoffs. I still believe we can. It’s just a matter of getting…

A Cold Win at Goose Creek

We won against Goose Creek’s softball team last night, 10-0. The weather was pretty cold. Monday’s game was canceled because of weather. We were able to capitalize on several errors mad by Goose Creek’s defense. Our defense made our own share of mistakes. Fortunately, the Gators couldn’t take advantage. We play Ft.Dorchester on the 17th….

Battle of the Bases 2017

In Stratford’s¬†first game against Hanahan they lost 3-1. Hanahan has always been a good team. We have lost to them before. They have a lot of great players. So do we though. Sometimes it takes us a little while to get going. Battle of the Bases 2017 from Tony Tate on Vimeo. In our second…

Softball Season is Back!

It is My Senior Year I am very excited about softball season. We won the State Championship last year. I don’t know how we will do this year, but we plan to have fun. Here are a few clips from a couple of scrimmages last week. Basketball season is over We won more games this…

BCSD Athletic Scholarship Signing

Today was the Berkeley County Athletic Scholarship Signing. It is an official signing ceremony for athletes from around our school district. I was among some of the smartest and athletic students in the district able to obtain athletic scholarships to the school of our choice. Some of athletes I have known since junior high school….

At the Capital

Honored Last week the Stratford Knights Softball team was honored at the State Capital for winning the AAAA State Championship in 2016. It was short and sweet. They summarized the game on the house floor, and we took some pictures afterward. After the pictures we went to a pretty good pizza restaurant called Persona. They…

I Love Basketball

The last time I posted was the day we played Goose Creek. There was no miracle! We got beat, and we got beat pretty thoroughly. Then we won against Cane Bay the Saturday following. Then we lost the next two games against Ashely Ridge and Wando. We really got clobbered in both games. That brings…
