Girls from U10 Lassen Lightning Fast pitch softball team to start fundraising

Lassen Lightning travel softball players are raising funds to make the journey to the USSSA All American Games in Florida this August.

Several girls from the 10U Lassen lightning travel softball team traveled to Sherwood, Oregon in attempt to make the USSSA All American Games that will be held in Viera, Florida at the Space Coast Stadium and Complex Aug. 2 through Aug. 7.

Each age group that tried out had the potential to get a direct invite.  USSSA only picks up to three direct invites from each age group.

Three girls from Lassen Lightning received Direct Invites and have accepted their invitations:

  • U9 London Pleau
