CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - During the Spring, when Adam Galicia was leading the East Softball team, the coach said that he expected a lot from the 2021 version of Cheyenne Extreme.

With just about two weeks left in the season, Extreme has an (18-7-1) record. The team also won the Extreme Weekend Tournament in early June and won their pool for the first time since 2012 in the Colorado Sparkler tournament last week.

With a team .378 batting average and a team ERA (Earned Run Average) of 3.48, Extreme is clearly talented. To make things even better, the squad apparently really gets along too.

“We get along super well. We gel really well,” said Brogan Allen. “There’s not a position you can throw any of us in, one that we haven’t played before [or] one that we have, where we can’t get the job done and where we can’t work together and work through it.”

Allen, who was a star on Cheyenne Central’s state runner-up team and a former Wyoming News Now Prep Athlete of the Week, has been fantastic at the plate. Brogan has slashed .448/.472/.731 (Batting Average/On-Base Percentage/Slugging Percentage) for Extreme this year. She one of nine Extreme players to have a batting average north of .300.

“If this team wasn’t successful, then I really would have to take a look at myself to see what we’re doing…myself and my coaches. The team’s definitely lived up to expectations.”

With so few Wyoming teams, Cheyenne Extreme plays competes in the Colorado State Tournament. The team’s first state game is on Saturday in Loveland, Colo. After that, the team returns to the Capital City for its first and only Cheyenne-hosted game of July. Extreme then heads to the USSSA National tournament in Florida to wrap up the season.

*Video Correction: Cheyenne Extreme has a team batting average of .378, not .320. Cheyenne also has a team pitching ERA of 3.48, not below 3.20.
