Cle Elum’s Upper County 12U Babe Ruth Softball team beat out Hoquiam girls in a close game that could have gone either way, according to their coach, Kevin Kelly. After a well played championship game the girls head to the National tournament in Alchua, FL on August 1st to compete in a a game, and experience they will likely remember for a lifetime. Kelly said he will meet with parents to discuss ways to fundraise for the trip, so if you’d like to help contribute, keep your eyes and ears open this weekend. This same group of gals also won the 10U tournament last year, but there are only National tournaments for 12U and 16U teams. The Warriors are one of 20 teams headed to the tournament this year, and we wish them well. Go Warriors!
