On Monday, Fruita Little League Softball won the Colorado State Championship and willk advance to the Southwestern Regional Tournament held in Waco, TX.
The Fruita All Stars, made up of girls ages 11 and 12, defeated a team from Pueblo 10-4 to capture the State Title.
Now they're focusing on the regional tournament.
Anyone who's watched this team this year can tell you, they can really swing a bat.
If they want to advance in the tournament, they're going to have to hit the ball well against some of the best teams in the west.
Heading to Waco is no easy thing, and it's certainly not cheap.
The team is holding a final fundraiser on Saturday, July 20th at the farmer's market in Fruita, in help with the costs.
The team will be serving up barbeque and accepting donation from 8:30AM to 12:30PM.
