North Shore’s 12U Gold team earns a spot in the Amateur Softball Association’s National Championships. The team qualified for the tournament after a strong performance at the state tournament in Lancaster over the weekend.

The team won two games in row to start the weekend, beating Cerritos 8-2 and Chino 7-3.  Manager Steve Walling said the team’s performance was impressive.  “They played flawless softball,” he said. “We asked them to do their best and they came through.”  The two wins qualified the team for the ASA Western National Championships to be held in Roseville, near Sacramento, later this month.

North Shore lost its next two games in tough battles to Alpine (6-5) and Camarillo (6-3), who finished the tournament in second place.  Walling said he is proud of the girls’ performance and couldn’t be happier for them.  “Some of these girls have been playing together for six years and their hard work has finally paid off,” he said.

The group was one of three teams from North Shore to compete at the state championship. The 8U and 10U will play again in fall season. Those interested in playing fall ball can sign up at

The 12U team will have a fundraiser July 21 at Chipotle in Carmel Valley to help cover some of the expenses of the weeklong tournament.
