It’s almost July. That means, for most high school sports, it’s the offseason.
However, one group of 13 to 17 year old softball players aren’t taking any days off.
The Princeton Senior League softball All-Stars were out at O’Reilly’s in Princeton selling baked goods and washing cars to raise money. The team is headed to the state tournament, after winning the district just days ago. They’ll travel to Barboursville, West Virginia to compete against some of the top teams across the Mountain State.
“I’m excited because we have such a great team going on and we have such great coaches and we’re just so proud to be the first team to go up state,” one team member said.
“”They earned it. They earned every bit of it,” added head coach J.R. Robinson. “They come to practice and if I asked them to run through a wall, they would run through a wall. But, the teamwork is my favorite part. Their favorite saying is “Family on 3 .. 1, 2, 3 — Family” and they truly believe it. I believe it.”
The state tournament is set to begin on Thursday, July 4.
