In its inaugural 18+ season, the Diamond Queens girls’ fastpitch travel team finished runner-up at the ASA Slugfest July 25 in Beaver Falls, Pa., capping off a limited 18+ season in which they placed first in two other tournaments.

“The girls did very well,” General Manager Bill Abraham of Paden City said. “Considering that the same team never played together in more than one tournament. That created a new learning curve for them at every event.”

Members of the permanent roster, who will return next year, are from West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
