However, four talented players still in high school also had a busy and productive summer, leading the East Cobb Bullets to a 2-0 victory in the championship game of the Triple Crown/USA Nationals  over Glory Adkins-Locke  in a contest played in Alpharetta.

Northgate infielder Natlie Heath and East Coweta’s Oliva Cook, Kylie Ferguson, Keandie Cooper and Katie Taylor all contributed to the team’s victory.
