A local softball team is headed to the USSSA Softball World Series. 

The Lady Stormers Under 16 team is headed to the USSSA Softball World Series at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Stadium in Orlando this summer. The girls qualified for the tournament after winning the Winter Challenge at the Net in Palmyra.

During that tournament, the team went  4-0 in the tournament; only allowing 3 runs while scoring 16. The wins included a no hitter and a one hitter.

These ladies though are not the only game in town. The group is made up of five teams which range from under 12s to 18 year olds that come from various teams around the area including many from the L-L League.

 The main mission of the Lady Stormers, is to create better high school athlete that in turn create college athletes.
