NMB Softball All-Stars win Senior state championship

The North Myrtle Beach All Star girls softball team won the Senior League South Carolina championship today in Little League play.

After winning the District 5 championship on June 25th, the 14-16 year old girls team advanced to the State Tournament held over the past two days in Easley, SC.

Day one of the tournament saw North Myrtle Beach defeating Fair Oaks 10-0. The normally 7 inning game was called in the 5th inning on the 10 run mercy rule. Pitching duties for North Myrtle Beach were shared by Kieran Lawson and Emily Johnson. NMB put up 7 runs in the first two innings of the opening game.

The second game began with 6 runs for the North Myrtle Beach team in the first inning but was halted due to rain after the 3rd inning, requiring both teams to return this morning. Summer Lewis pitched the win in the 7 inning 10-3 win over Fair Oaks in the best of 3, giving the North Myrtle Beach All Star team it’s State Championship.

Several members of the 2012 State Championship team were members of the North Myrtle Beach State championship team from 2011 in the Little League Majors division.

Head Coach Kelly Johnson says “This year was kinda of a repeat. We are a young team in a older age group. To win this is a pretty big deal. We know that the next step is going to be tougher for us at the Southeastern Regional. But, we are real proud of how they played. They stepped up and played really hard and they deserve this. ”

The team will now travel to represent the State of South Carolina in the Southeastern tournament to be held in Ft. Myers, FL July 27-Aug. 1.
