Champion:  Enough Said, Tallahassee, Florida
Runner Up: Derby Girls, Seattle, Washington


After Enough Said defeated the US Armed Forces 7-5, the Derby Girls eliminated the Armed Forces 18-15 in the Losers Bracket Final to get a shot at the Championship against Enough Said. But, it wasn’t meant to be. Despite the power of Derby Girls’ Christan Dowling who cracked 5 HRs and had 17 RBIs in the tournament, Enough Said put the Derby Girls away with a 12-4 Championship game win. Enough Said went undefeated with a 3-0 record to claim the ASA Women’s Open National Championship title defeating Derby Girls/Combat (3-2), 12-4, in the title game. Enough Said worked its way through the winner’s bracket with two wins against Derby Girls, the Championship victory and 18-7 victory, and a 7-5 win over Armed Forces. Enough Said earned its spot in the Championship Game after defeating Armed Forces 7-5. Armed Forces and Derby Girls/Combat then met up to avoid elimination and earn a spot in the title game. Derby Girls staved off elimination defeating the Armed Forces 18-15. The Derby Girls took an early 11-2 lead in the first and would hold the lead the entire game. The Armed Forces wouldn’t go down without a fight scoring four runs in the top of the seventh to threaten but the Derby Girls held their lead for the win. Misty Smith of the Derby Girls was 2-for-3 with four RBI to lead the team. With a victory, the Derby Girls moved on to face Enough Said for the Championship game. Enough Said and Derby Girls both put a run up in the first with Enough Said scoring three more in the third to take the lead of which they would never give up. It looked like the Derby Girls would cut the lead in the sixth when they loaded up the bases. However a fly out left runners stranded. Enough Said scored three unanswered runs in the top of the seventh to take away a 12-4 victory and National Championship performance for the second consecutive year. Nikki Hall, who was later named the Batting Champion, was ecstatic about the weekend and very thankful to her teammate, coach and the ASA.

Champion: Hawks/Miss Kitty, Des Moines, Iowa
Runner Up: Armed Forces, Washington, D.C.


Hawks/Miss Kitty’s, Coming from the loser’s bracket, Hawks/Miss Kitty’s captured the 2008 Women’s Open National Championship in a 6 -5 walk-off decision over the Armed Forces. It was a long day for the winning team as they played five games tallying a 4-1 record. The Hawks forced the “if” game five when they skunked Armed Forces 10-0 in game four. In the final championship win, the Hawks were led by catcher and tournament MVP Sirene Johnson who led the way going 2-for-4 in the final game with three RBI. Armed Forces put up a great fight with four batters each contributing two hits. But they couldn’t hold the lead as Hawks/Miss Kitty’s scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh for the eventual walk-off win. “This team has a great group of talent, but we just needed to pull together our mental game today,” said tournament MVP Sirene Johnson. “And that we did. We lost to Armed Forces twice and we really needed to combine our mental focus with our physical talent to win this. We changed our defense due to their base hits in the game before and we finally started hitting the ball. Our team never gave up! And we love Oklahoma City!” The home run champion went to Hawks/Miss Kitty’s Ruby Nugent while the batting champion went to extra hitter and head coach of the Hawks/Miss Kitty, Christan Dowling.

2006 held at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.


Champion: Long Haul/Enough Said/Easton/Tanel, Tallahassee, Florida (East)
Runner Up: Armed Forces, Washington D.C. (West)


It was a show down between the 2004 Women’s Open champion and the 2005 Women’s Open champion at the 2006 Hooters Championship Series. Enough Said swept the Armed Forces during the 2004 Women’s Open championship but it was the Armed Forces who swept the Yard Dawgs in 2005 to capture their first championship series. Long Haul/Enough Said took a commanding 2-0 lead in the series on Friday winning their opener 10-2 and finishing the night with a 16-11 victory. It looked as if it might be another blow out in game three as Long Haul took a commanding 6-0 lead in the first inning but the Armed Forces battled back. Solid defense held Long Haul scoreless during the next innings and the Armed Forces managed to score three in the second, two in the fourth and a run in the fifth to tie the game 6-6 in the top of the fifth. Long Haul responded with two runs in the bottom of the fifth to take the lead once again and added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Armed Forces managed to plate only one run in the top of the seventh inning and for the second time they were swept by Enough Said in the Hooters Championship Series. Women’s Open MVP Cara Coughenour came through in a big way in game three going 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI. During the championship series Coughenour was 7-for-11 (.626) with two doubles, a home run and eight RBI. Long Haul/Enough Said finished 66-2 on the season.

Long Haul/Enough Said won all three championships games 10-2, 16-11, 9-7.

From 2003-2006, ASA Women’s Open Class Tournament had 2 separate National Championship Tournaments; East Open and West Open. The two winners then met in Oklahoma City in a Best of 5 Series for the Women’s Open National Championship. All America teams were selected at both the East and West National Tournaments, along with MVPs, Batting Champions, etc. In the Best of 5 Final Series, only an MVP was selected.
