Kassi Ward, WA JP Queen, in the Aquafina Pitch, Hit and Run competition

Olympia's Kassandra Ward takes a swing at the Aquafina Pitch, Hit and Run sectional competition at the Lacey RAC on Sunday June 6th. Kassandra won the local competition in May to earn a spot in the SW Washington Sectionals, where she took first place with an overall score of 986 including a perfect score in the pitching competition.

Her score was compared against the other 1st place scores in the Northwest Region sectionals and was one of the top three to qualify her to compete at the Seattle Mariners Team Championship being held at Safeco Field on June 20th during the Mariners vs Reds game. The top Team Championship scorers, nationwide, earn a free trip to the Major League Baseball All-Star game in Anaheim to compete in the National Finals competition in July.

Now THAT is super cool!!

    Kassi plays baseball (NOT softball) with my son on a very competitive team, the only girl that I know of still competing at this level. The team is completely behind her, as shown by this photo of them posing with her wearing her crown and holding her baseball bat: http://www.sportsunlimitednw.com/images/260_DSC_0004.jpg
