Lady Fury wins World SeriesAug 12th, 2013 | By Candace Griffin | Category: news
The Plaquemines Parish “Lady Fury” softball team won this year’s Dizzy Dean World Series. This is the first time in history that any team in Plaquemines has won a World Series in softball.
The team consisted of 12 players ranging in age form 12-15, all of whom came from the Plaquemines Parish Recreation Department.
After playing 12 regular season games, the Lady Fury went on to play several travel
ball tournaments and scrimmages before their trip to the World Series, which was made up of four teams.
The Lady Fury were fierce competitors and managed to narrow down the field to their final adversary, the Sherman All-Stars from Sherman, Mississippi. In their first game against the All-Stars, the Lady Fury lost by nearly 15 points, but managed to pull things together in the championship game to beat the All- Stars by one point—the final score was 4-3.
For their achievements the Lady Fury received an enormous trophy, as well as a surprise from the Parish Council. The Council awarded the girls with a proclamation declaring August 8, 2013 as Lady Fury Day in the parish of Plaquemines.
“I can’t believe we’re getting our own day,” said Kelsey Johnson, catcher for the Lady Fury. “That’s so crazy!”
Through team effort and dedication, outstanding coaching, hard work, and the love and support of their family and friends, the girls have made Plaquemines Parish proud, expressed the Council.
Congrats on the big win Lady Fury!
