Wesley Chapel softball going to the World Series

The Wesley Chapel Athletic Association's 9- and 10-year-old Angels Softball All Star team won the Florida state tournament last weekend in Carrabelle. The WCAA Angels went 4-0 in the tournament, outscoring their opponents 44-2 overall. The Angels pitching was a crucial factor, as the five pitchers used struck out 35 batters, giving up a mere three hits.

"Wesley Chapel is a fairly new community so we've really just been trying to build something," assistant coach Scott Kadlub said. "We're the first Wesley Chapel softball team to win at the state level. We've really worked on our pitching over the last few years and it's paid off in these tournaments. At the plate we've been able to relax knowing that our pitching would keep us in the game."

The WCAA Angels will now represent Wesley Chapel and the state of Florida at the Dixie Angels World Series against 12 other states at the World Series in South Hill, Va., from July 29 to Aug 3. The team now faces the challenge of raising money for the trip.
