Corinne York, who is the Player Agent for the Ohio County Youth Softball Team and Team Manager for the 10U All Star Team, says, "This is the first time in ten years these girls have been given the opportunity to play in an All Star Tournament." That tournament is being held in Fern Creek/Louisville through July 7th!

Ohio County sent two teams of girls to compete- one 8U team (consisting of local 7 & 8-year-olds) and one 10U team (consisting of 9 & 10-year-old girls).

Corinne estimates that roughly 80 players, parents, and other family members made the trip yesterday morning. They'll serve as the fan base for the girls on both teams. She adds, "The girls will spend four days on the field fighting for the championship."

Seven teams total will be competing for the state title in the 8U division. There will be nine teams competing in the 10U division. Corinne says, "These young girls are strong, fierce athletes, who have dedicated numerous hours on the field to get this far and deserve all the recognition they can get!"
