The Chico Softball Majors All-Stars have punched their ticket to the Little League World Series!
Chico defeated Washington, 8-4, in the West Regional championship to become the first California District 47 softball all-star team to make it to the LLWS.
CA District 47 encompasses Butte and Glenn County.
In the championship game Taylor Culp stepped up, going 3-for-3 at the plate as well as tossing a complete game from the mound.
Chico entered the sixth and final inning with an 8-1 lead, but Washington rallied for three runs before Culp was able to close it out, ushering in a celebration that these girls will surely never forget.
Throughout the regional tournament Chico received contributions from everyone on the team indicating that they are indeed one of the best and deepest all-star teams the northstate has ever seen.
The Little League Softball World Series takes place from August 7-13 in Portland, OR.
