Recap: New Mexico Suncats 18u Gold Gandert Traveled to HFL Mid Atlantic Qualifier

By: Arielle Gordon

The New Mexico Suncats 18u Gold Gandert team traveled to Myrtle Beach, SC for the Heart of America Fastpitch League (HFL) Mid Atlantic Qualifier played February 5–7. They were the only team representing the Rocky Mountain Fastpitch League (RMFL) at the tournament. Though the Suncats were not able to earn AFCS berths from the event, it was a great opportunity for them to compete against other Alliance Fastpitch teams across the country and earn valuable points towards their Alliance Power Point (APP) rankings, and RMFL standing.

Here are some of the highlights from the tournament:

Left fielder Presley Skinner hit a two-run home run that coach Jonathan Gandert estimated went 265 feet. Skinner has committed to continue her career at New Mexico State University.
