The players from the Roxboro All-Stars are the North Carolina state champs after an unbeaten run in area, district and state tournaments.

A win in the regional tournament could earn the girls a spot in the Little League Junior Softball World Series, to be held in the Seattle area Aug. 15-21.

    Unlike the 10U girls team that has a coach with very unsportsmanlike behavior. Hope this coach behaves better on the field and the team gets a win they deserve. 10U coach was ejected from our game against them in the 2nd play of the game. I guess he didn't remember the words of the Little League parent pledge he recited 3 minutes earlier at the start of the game.

    Yet no mention of the the 16U girls softball team from Henderson who won the State tournament, and the Southeast regional tournament in Florida last weekend, and now leaves for their 3rd appearance in 4 years at the Babe Ruth World Series, in Varina Virginia.
