The 12-year-old girls Little League softball team from Robbinsville won the United States East Regionals in Bristol Connecticut with a 3-2 win over a team from Exton, Pennsylvania in July. The team will move onto the World Series in Oregon for the second time in two years. Their first game is Thursday against the team from Iloilo Province, Philippines.

“There is confidence and there is also nervousness,” pitcher MacKenzie Medders told the Trentonian. “We came in third last year and this year we want to win it all, so we’re nervous and confident.”

Teammate Shea Walsh told the newspaper that most of the team is the same as last year which gives them an advantage. “We learned the strengths of each team, and what each team does and what each team is known for” she told the newspaper.

The New Jersey state champions was undefeated at the Eastern Regional in Bristol, Connecticut, topping  teams from Connecticut, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.

While the team is honored to represent New Jersey as state champions, it can also be a financial hardship. A Go Fund Me page has been established to help with expenses. The team also held fundraisers and collected donations at a township concert.

In addition, the Robbinsville 9/10-year-old-girls are state champions and are playing in the Eastern Regional Tournament in Old Forge, Pennsylvania The team is so far undefeated.
