Something Special sparkled on the softball diamond during the Washington State ASA state championship tournament July 12 to 14, in Yakima.
Camas players Emma Jimenez, Lena Richards, Katie Schroeder and Rio Smith helped this U-16 team win six games on the final day of the tournament.
Something Special defeated the Northwest Lady Sharks 8-7 at 8 a.m., the Vancouver Force 3-2 at 10 a.m., the Northwest Illusion 6-3 at noon, the Northwest Sidewinders 10-2 at 2 p.m. and Elite Fastpitch 8-7 at 4 p.m.
“We had already lost a state championship this year. We were not about to lose another one. This was our time to do something,” Richards said. “What made it a team effort is every single girl on the team did their part to help us win.”
