The Camp Verde Little League softball team is on its way to the regional championship.
And this is the first time in history the team has ever gotten this far.
Members of the Camp Verde Little League Juniors Division Softball team are the newly-crowned Junior Softball State Champions and in Tucson for the Western Regional tournament. They are representing Arizona and are facing the best teams from California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii. Their first game will be against Northern California.
“It is wonderful,” said Henry Smith, team manager. “This is new territory for us, but the girls are a great example of how the sport should be played. They have worked so hard to be the state champs and are the perfect representatives of Arizona softball.”
The road to this victory consisted of triumphs and heartbreaking defeats.
