Webb City 16U softball wins state, advances to regional in Michigan

The Webb City 16U softball team is headed to the Senior League Central Region tournament in Byron Center, Michigan.

Webb City topped DeSoto 12-11 in game two of their championship series Sunday evening in Joplin to punch their ticket to Michigan. Webb City won game one on Saturday 15-10.

“It feels amazing,” says Webb City head coach Lorree Walters, “These girls have worked hard in practice and they deserve every bit of this. We’ve been trying to turn the 16U league around for a long time. This is going to bring girls back to the field to play softball.”

“It’s real exciting,” says Jade Hargis, who had the go-ahead hit for Webb City in the 5th inning, “This is my last year. I’m just so happy that I have this team. They’re great.”
