NC Lady Blues 18U Softball Team coached by Ethan Albright headed to California…..
This past weekend the local Lady Blues 18U team competed in the PGF National Qualifier tournament in Myrtle Beach SC. They walked away with a berth the National tournament in Huntington Beach, CA July 22-30!
This team is made up of girls that play their high school ball at Page and Eastern Guilford High School, Western and Eastern Alamance High School, Rockingham High School and Eden Morehead High School plus others. They are coached by Page High School’s Ethan Albright.
These ladies work extremely hard on and off the field. Most of them are All Conference at their respective schools and maintain an average GPA of 4.0. They have each volunteered at a number of events like the Miracle League Network of High Point and Feed the Hunger.
Each of these ladies has the desire to continue playing softball in college while continuing their education, that’s why they are part of the Lady Blues organization.
When they walked onto the fields in Myrtle Beach, playing their FIRST 18U tournament, their goal was just to show well! Play hard, catch the eye of some scouts! Before they knew it, they were winning and discussing going to California!
Total costs for airfare, hotels and food for the team (11 girls) is approximately $15,000. Along with a fundraising raffle, we are reaching out to the local media outlets, both print and television, with the hope of reaching folks and local businesses that will be able to assist with sponsorships. We are a 501 (C) 3 organization, so any donation is tax deductible.
These ladies are proof that girls can be a triple threat – smart, athletic and beautiful!
