The West Virginia All-Stars from Moorefield chose this song by the Bee Gees as the official team song for inspiration at the Southeastern Regional Tournament and it was fitting having to play three elimination games to reach the championship.
West Virginia (Moorefield) was grooving to the music in Salisbury, N.C. clicking heels during victories against Tennessee (Mooresburg-Bean Station) 15-3 and North Carolina (Rutherfordton-Forest City-Chase) 5-2 on Saturday to advance to the loser’s bracket final for a berth into the Southeastern Regional Junior League Softball Championship.
“I’m very proud of these girls. I’m proud of their mindset coming after the Florida loss, They came out early against Tennessee and were able to get some bunts down. We made good contact and ran the bases well. Our defense looked pretty good. The pitchers threw pretty well,” West Virginia manager Sheldon Arbaugh noted.
“They are getting greedy now, They got this win and they want to go out and win again. They are excited. They told me they felt this wasn’t their best game yet.”
