Auburn High School Alumni getting down and DIRTY! Cascade vs Olympic

If you missed the Cascade Jr High vs Olympic Jr High Softball game in Auburn, WA.... You missed a seriously good time!  We are all Alumni from Auburn High School about 1986 - 1988.

It all started on Facebook with a few old friends trash talking about the Jr High Schools in Auburn that they had gone too.  Apparently, it blew up into a full on Old Folks Baseball game.  Robby Akau was the "get it together" guy.  He talked me into going and I am glad he did.

We all met down at West Auburn High School on Saturday, May 9th.  It was supposed to be 1:00 - 4:00 and well... We started playing about 1:45 maybe?  There were people there I hadn't seen in years.  There were some folks I had never met (or don't remember) before and no one seemed to care.  We got lucky because the day was gorgeous.

From what I could gather, there were a lot of 1988, 1987 and 1986 (that's me) Auburn High School Graduates.  A few had been playing ball on teams, but most were just going out for the fun of it.  And we got Fun!

So we played for hours.  Cascade only had 9 members, but we were not giving in!  Olympic was up (they had some "ringers" and used much younger family members) and we kept fighting.  I think it was when we finally caught up to them.... 23 to 23 when someone screamed "last inning".  Thank goodness.  My body was about to give up if they hadn't called it. 

We fought and fought, but in the end it was the Olympic Jr High Cougars that rang through.  We Spartans put up a good fight tho'. 

My body hurts, legs not moving well and found muscles I hadn't seen in a while.. but I would do it again and hope to soon.

Thanks to everyone that made it a great day and wonderful time!
