The Goleta Valley Girls Softball Association 12U Girls won the USA SOFTBALL Western Nationals.

A first for the league. No 12u team has ever made it past 7th place in the national championships. 

The team went 8-0 and swept the national championships In Roseville California this last week. Temperatures as high as 105 during games. 

In the semifinal game they overcame a 4 run deficit in the bottom of the 7th (and final inning) to defeat previously undefeated San Mateo 9-8. The more remarkable thing was the entire line up batted  in that inning. The 6,7,8&9 hitters all got hits to facing a 2 out scenario with the 8 hitter tying the game and the 9th hitter winning the game on a line drive to center field. 

Even more remarkable they did it with just one pitcher. She pitched 8 complete games - 601 pitches, 219 batters faced, 79 hits, 42 runs, 6 walks.

For many years the GVGSA has run an outstanding fast pitch program for Goleta girls. Congratulations to the manager, coaches and especially the girls for your hard work to reach the top. Fighting back with five runs in the bottom of the seventh to win will be remembered for a long time.
