August 2nd:

The Waves finished the year on Saturday with a 22-15 final record and 14-8 in league for second place.  It was an inconsistent season this summer.  The Waves beat some some quality programs including the Arroyo Seco Saints, Palm Springs Power, Alaska Goldpanners and Inland Valley Pirates.  However, in league play we could never really be consistent enough to get on a long winning streak that we were capable of doing.  I would like to thank Coaches Schmeiser and Kolbe for all the hard work they put in this summer.  I would like to thank all of our sponsors and host families.  We would not have a program without all of you.  We are looking forward to 2022 already.
