From picnic shenanigans to dugout dancing, Moorefield Little League 9-11 Softball All-Stars chemistry was tremendous in the state tournament putting together a 10-3 victory over Hite-Saunders in the first round last Saturday in Hedgesville.
“These girls have worked so hard. They are playing as a team. as a coach you know when they play as a team good things will happen. Amber
Williams pitched a great game and we only made a few mistakes. We hit the ball very well. Our defense was strong. Need to do it again tomorrow,” Moorefield Little League 9-11 Softball All-Stars manager Tyrone Haines remarked.
District 6 champion Moorefield played with whimsical facial expression signs during the picnic and kept the joy going with dancing and singing in the dugout.
Moorefield’s Sterling Kump hit a leadoff single off District 1 runner-up Hite-Saunders pitcher Isabella Johnston just beating the shortstop’s throw.
Seanna Heavner drew a walk after Kump stole second base, then Johnston struck out Carlee Haines.
