Amanda Ogata, Kenyon College, going deep!

Amanda Ogata (Kenyon College) hits for the cycle!

In a recent double header against Oberlin, Amanda Ogata put on an offensive show, hitting for the cycle (single, double, triple and home run) to help Kenyon to a sweep of Oberlin. As you can imagine, hitting for the cycle is one of the most difficult feats to accomplish in softball or baseball, with the triple being the hardest hit to get. 
Ogata went 6 for 8, with 8 rbis between the 2 games! Amanda leads her team with a blistering .507 batting average, way to go Amanda!

Larger than Life!

The Sting family was deeply saddened to learn of Bob Randall's unexpected passing on Friday, March 4th. His daughter, Dani played for the Sting and as a former Sting coach, Bob left his mark and then some on our organization and all of softball. How to describe Bob.....

- Passionate
- All in
- Fiercely loyal and devoted  
- Generous
- Loving
- Hilarious

I could go on and on, he's that memorable of a man. Once you met Bob Randall, you never forgot him! His smile and laugh were contagious and his bear hugs were legendary. He loved the game of softball and gave his all to the players fortunate enough to have played for him. Our heartfelt condolences, prayers and love go out to the Randall family. Larger than life? Absolutely!

Gone too soon

It is with a heavy heart that the Sting family shares that we have lost one of our biggest fans and supporters,  Julie Loeffler. Julie passed away on February 20th after a courageous battle with cancer over the past few years. Julie was a shining example of bravery, toughness, courage and love for the game!

Julie's daughter, Sydney has been with the Sting family since Fall 2014 and Julie loved watching her play! Please keep Sydney, her brother Kyle and her father, Larry (Julie's husband) in your thoughts and prayers. 

Also, a site has been created by a Loeffler family friend for donations for the family in this time of need:
