Aftershock — a 16U fast pitch softball team under the coaching prowess of Chris Flowers and Richie Taunton, both of Crossett — played in the Fastpitch American Softball Association C Class World Series in Hot Springs last weekend.

The tournament was at Kimrey Park and Lake Hamilton Optimist Park.

Aftershock finished as runner-up in the 16 and 18U Division.

During the pool play on Thursday, Aftershock won three games. They beat 16U Maximum Impact 17-0, Arkansas Rebellion 7-4 and Texas Glory 2-0.

In their first bracket game on Friday, Aftershock beat Arkansas Havoc 6-0, but then fell to SWAT 1-0 in a heartbreaker.

Aftershock won three games in the loser’s bracket to fight their way back to the championship.

Aftershock fell to the undefeated 18U Maximum Impact team in the championship.

Aftershock also placed in multiple other tournaments this season.

The girls ended the season as the world series runners-up, but were the champions of several other tournaments this year including the USSSA Knuckle Up tournament and the USA Pre-State tournament.

The Aftershock athletes from Crossett include players Jenna Cate Roberts and Lainey Taunton.

Other Aftershock players include Allie Stevens of Dumas, Autumn Gunter of Beebe, Shamiya Moye of Lake Village, Emily Bevill of Beebe, Saige Mahar of Waldron, Trista Goodwin of Warren, Haleigh Cingolani of Lake Village and Paige Thomas of Russellville.
