A banner season for local team

Talk about entering your own personal Field of Dreams. Or writing a script deserving of Hollywood.

That perfectly fits the La Grande Little League girls softball team that won the state title Tuesday in Scappoose.

The 9-10-year-old softball all-star team made each day of the state and regional tournaments its masterpiece. The culminating moment came with a 10-0 win over Klamath Falls.

Head coach Brent Wiggins gave a lot of credit not only to his players, who were stellar, but also to assistant coaches Mike Brock and Shane Kirkland, and to the parents who rooted on this one-of-a-kind team and cheered them to success.

Wiggins said everybody did their part in this total team effort to succeed. The players improved incrementally as the season progressed, culminating in the state title hardware, and there is great hope they will continue to work hard to succeed as they move on in their softball careers.

Congratulations, softball team, for a great Hollywood ending.
