Softball fundraiser planned

In case you missed it, we’ve got a North Kitsap Little League state championship team in our midst. I received an email today from one of the player’s mother letting me know that the Girls Big League Softball Team (an 18U team) beat out District 4 and 6 for the Big League win, which happened over the weekend in Vancouver, Wash.

According to the mother, the players have been together since they were about 6 years old. They even have the same coach from their beginning years as aspiring softball players. If you think about it, with all the activities and interests that pull our teenagers every direction these days, it’s pretty impressive that these young women, for the most part, have stayed together as a team for so long. That’s commitment not only to the sport, but also to each other.

With their recent win under their belts, the team hasn’t done too much celebrating. That’s because they’re scheduled to depart Monday for the regional championship in Palmdale, Calif. But before they go they’re hoping to raise some money to help cover some of the expenses incurred on their trip.

They’ve planned a fundraiser at Central Market for the weekend. They’ll be selling ice cream by donations only to help defray some of the costs of the trip (i.e. airfare, hotels, meals, etc.)

So if you’re at Central Market between 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday or Sunday and you see the team selling ice cream, tell them congrats, good luck and consider buying a cone if you’ve got a couple bucks to spare.

Congratulations ladies.
