Both winning teams advanced to the semi-finals later that day where the Venezolanos grabbed another win, this time against the Equipo Aguilos DE Venezuela, 6-2. The New York Gremlins played their first game of the day against the New York Swashbucklers, with the Gremlins taking the game 9-2.


In other exciting news surrounding the tournament, Rafael Flores of Sopotocientos de Venezuela proposed to his girlfriend, Luz Manna Rodriguez, at home plate prior to kicking off the AAU Men's International Fastpitch Championships! She said yes and threw out a ceremonial first pitch!

AAU POWERLIFTING WORLD RECORD HOLDER, HONOR ROLL STUDENT, MULTI-SPORT CHAMPION, OVERCOMES ADVERSITY


The more you learn about Evan Pittman, the more you can see he has the real winning edge! He took up the violin at age 6–and rose to play in a university honor orchestra by the time he reached high school. He started in taekwondo at 6 also–and won six state championships. He began powerlifting at age 10–and set a world record in his first competition, followed by many more. In high school he started springboard diving--and became one of the top 20 divers in his state in his first year. He aspires to compete in the Olympics–either the summer games as a diver, or the winter games as a bobsledder/skeleton athlete. Besides all these talents, he's an honor roll student as well!

But all the trophies, medals and honors Evan has earned couldn't fill the emptiness he felt from the constant uprooting and moving required of military families, or the difficulties of his father's repeated overseas deployments. On top of these emotional burdens, he faced an obstacle in the classroom that affected every aspect of his life. See how he overcame his challenges through hope and faith when his profile airs next month on TRWE!
