Laramie Is Ready For State Softball Championships
Laramie Girls Softball is ready for the 2019 Wyoming State Championships Friday through Sunday in Casper.
The program has seven teams and around 80 kids participating this year. The squads are represented in the 8U division, 10U Rec and 10U B divisions, 12U B, 14U Rec and 14U B divisions, and 18U Rec.
Laramie board member Jason Pacheco said he’s very happy to see how many are involved.
“That’s amazing. To watch how we’ve continued to grow and have seven teams here is exciting. Our goal is to hopefully have two teams in every division at some point, your rec team and then a competitive, that’s our goal.”
Laramie won two titles a year ago at this tournament in the 8U and 10U Rec divisions. Two out of the three other teams at state finished in third place in 2018.
Pacheco feels good about the prospects for LGS in 2019.
“I think we should bring home a couple of championships.”
Pacheco is the head coach of the 14U B division team.
“In our division, we have five teams, and they’re all good, so we’re going to have to play really well from the get-go, so I’m excited to see what happens in the next couple of days.”
