The Kershaw County 10U girls’ all-star softball team tuned up for Saturday’s district tournament at Larry Doby Park in Camden by rattling off seven wins in as many games in pre-tourney competition.

The team is made up of Kaitlyn Anderson, Addie Bittner, Alyssa Faulkenberry, Kayley Lynch, Jazira Meagley, Savana Mosley, Emaree Ray, Laurel Rodgers, Ella Sheorn, Madison Stokes, Isabel Trapp and Carleigh Wallace. The coaching staff is led by head coach Lee Stokes and assistant coaches Beth Faulkenberry, William Trapp and Stephen Sheorn. 

The local entry won all four of their games in last weekend’s ASA pre all-star state tournament in Aiken. KC squad outscored their four opponents by a combined 73-12. The squad is made of players from throughout the county including six future Lady Bulldogs (Camden High), three future Lady Demons (Lugoff-Elgin) and a trio of girls headed to be future Lady Knights at North Central. 

“This team has improved greatly due to the young ladies’ work ethic and willingness to compete,” Stokes said, “in addition to all of the support from the assistant coaches, William Trapp, Beth Faulkenberry and Stephen Sheorn, and multiple support from many in the community.”

Stokes and his staff saved special thank-yous for coach Chuck Sturkie for throwing 500 plus pitches a day to this team. To coach Mike Rawl for working countless hours with them on their batting/bunting and fielding, to coach Bob Mays for his encouraging words and overall support for the team and to Lugoff-Elgin head softball coach James Marlow for allowing the access to the facilities at L-E, which has helped in the development of the team. 

The KC All-Stars will open district tourney play on Saturday against Jefferson in a 4 p.m. start at Larry Doby Park. The Kershaw County Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting all age groups for the softball tournaments for the district. 

“Please come out and support these young ladies,” Stokes said.
