Two Scripps Ranch Softball Association (SRSA) All-Star teams (12u and 10u) made it all the way to compete in the State tournament in Lancaster, Calif., this summer. The teams were led by 12u head coach Dean Ridgway and 10u head coach Ryan Williams.

Both teams lost close games in State competition on June 30, but they both came back to win games the morning of July 1 before being eliminated in losses that same day.

The local teams qualified for States by finishing as top teams at the USA Softball District Tournament in Ramona. The Scripps Ranch 12u team went to the District Championship game and finished the tournament in second place. The Scripps Ranch 10u team finished the District Tournament in third place.

“It was a great season and the girls on both of those teams fought hard! It was great watching them all play this season, even in that 105 degree weather at States,” stated SRSA president Anna Carrasco in an email.
