Having already conquered the state of South Carolina, the Kershaw County-based Lite ‘em Up girls’ fast-pitch softball team is ready to take on the world.A year ago, the team which is coached by the husband-and-wife duo of Joey and Stephanie Cobb, won the 12-and-under South Carolina recreation department state championship tournament played in Aiken playing as the Kershaw County All-Stars. Now, most of those same girls are headed to the Grand Strand to play in the 12-and-under World Series in Myrtle Beach from August 5-12.It has been a meteoric rise to the top for the program, which is now in its second year of existence. And, Stephanie Cobb said, there is no well-kept secret to the team’s success.
