    LONG of missouri in the house of representatives Thursday, January 3, 2013 Mr. LONG. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Pleasant Hope High School Softball Team on their victory in the Class 2 State Championships.

    The Lady Pirates' come-from-behind victory over Brookfield capped off their 28-2 season with Pleasant Hope's first ever State championship.

    These young ladies ended the season as one of the greatest offensive teams in the history of Missouri. They batted an astounding .415 as a team, held an on base percentage of .456, and were successful with 95 out of 100 stolen base attempts. Their dominant play style allowed them to amass 353 hits over the course of their 30 games.

    I congratulate the school and the players on their victory, and applaud the hard work that has brought them so much success. I am proud to recognize the athletic achievements of the residents of the Seventh District of Missouri.
