Just a week after the softball-playing men of Dallas fought it out in Minneapolis, at the NAGAAA World Series for men’s softball, the ladies of Dallas did the same in sunny San Diego for the female equivalent, the ASANA tourney. Three Dallas teams — C Division teams After Shock, Rock Chix and Outkasts —attended the week-long sports summit, and while each team played at least six games, none emerged in the leader box.

“They played hard,” says Amy Torrez, one of the coaches of the Rock Chix team. And there’s always next year. After all, Dallas loves its sports teams, and we’ll show up to give it our all.
