Announcing 2021-22 Softball Commissioner: Coach Doug O’Neal!

We’re excited to see Doug return as Commissioner for the fourth year! Doug has been a constant member of the coaching staff for five years and will continue to serve as Varsity Head Coach. Doug grew up with a love for sports participating in baseball, basketball, and BMX racing. He began his coaching career when he was in high school, and has coached fast-pitch softball for 13 years and tallies over 300 wins under his belt.

Doug loves working with young people and strives to help each child become the best versions of themselves. Athletics is a very effective tool he uses to help children learn in their development into young adults as sports teaches them not only about the game, but also about life.  “Believe in the system,” is a phrase players often hear from Doug, and another one is, “We play a half inning at a time.” The FEAST Team Biblical Verse has been 1 Corinthians 9:24, NLT: “Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!” 

Doug is happily married to his wife, Kelly, and has three daughters: Stephanie, Hailey, and Kylie. He and his wife have homeschooled their children for 15 years. Doug says that he feels blessed to be a part of an organization that allows homeschooled children to play sports and he looks forward to the future of FEAST Softball.

Thank you for your continued service, Doug!

Girls’ Middle School (MS) Softball: ISAL CHAMPIONS!

What an exciting first full season for our MS girls! FEAST seeded an impressive first place in ISAL (Independent School Athletic League) by going undefeated in every game. These girls showed grit and determination in the ISAL tournament semi-final game as they entered the last inning trailing 2 – 6. But the bats were hot and FEAST pulled out a win with a score of 7 – 6 on a walk-off home run! Next up was the ISAL tourney championship! 

Believe it or not, the championship was even more of a nail-biter as our girls left it all on the field! In an exciting tie-breaker, FEAST defeated Geneva for the ISAL championship! We are so proud of how these girls came together as individual players and grew into an impressive team this season. They worked hard at every practice and game, and never gave up or got discouraged in the play-offs! GREAT JOB, PATRIOTS!

We’re looking for MS Softball players! Ten of our twelve MS players will move up to high school next year. Please get the word out to 11-13 year old girls (6-8th grade) – no experience necessary!

FEAST MS Softball, in its first full season, went undefeated, winning first place in the ISAL (Independent School Athletic League)!

MIDDLE SCHOOL: Last year, we assembled for what was to be FEAST’s inaugural middle school softball season. One game was played before Covid hit, and we all know how the rest of the year went. Coming back in 2021, we had an even larger turnout and gained another coach!

In softball, pitchers and catchers are as good as gold, and we are blessed with impressive talent in both positions. We are strong from top to bottom in our batting order and every player was a contributor on the field. We’re incredibly proud of individual improvements and overall team effort. And what a season it turned out to be!

FEAST MS Softball, in its first full season, went undefeated, winning first place in the ISAL (Independent School Athletic League)! The team showed grit and determination in our ISAL tournament semi-final game, entering the last inning trailing 2-6. Our bats got hot and we came back to win 7-6 on a walk-off homerun! Next up, tourney championship – stay tuned!

All but two of our 12 players will move up to high school next year. Please get the word out – we’re looking for 11-13 year-old girls (6-8th grade) interested in playing softball. No experience necessary!

FEAST HS Softball’s season has come to an end.

HIGH SCHOOL: Despite a trying 2021 season, this Varsity team accomplished more than any other FEAST Varsity softball team has in the past! For the first time, our ladies were ranked in the Top 5 Private School Softball Weekly Rankings by VYPE for three weeks! We ranked #4 for two weeks and for one week at number 5.

Our program continues to grow under the current leadership, and our future looks good!

Head Coach Doug O’Neal echoed those thoughts to the Varsity team. “This was the best overall year for the program. We may not have had the best record, but overall, by far the best! 2021 Patriots Softball was the year that put our program on the map, and teams were gunning for the Patriots.” 2021 was also the first year that the Patriots went up against both public and private schools ranging from 2A-5A in size. Congratulations, ladies!

The Patriots dominated all but two games, and finished in second place overall. The Patriots fell out of the top five rankings for a week, but quickly jumped back in at number 5.

FEAST Middle School Softball has started the season off strong supporting a 5-0 record in the early season.
