The Force continues remarkable softball run

To the editor:

We just got back from Charlestown, N.H., the weekend of July 16-17 where the Berkshire Force Under-16 softball team won the regionals. Our granddaughter, Britney, is a proud member of the Force, and the people of Berkshire County should be so proud to have this amazing group of young women representing us.

The team won the regionals last year and finished third in the World Series in Jensen Beach, Fla. They will be returning to Jensen Beach again this year.

This dedicated, hard-working group proves that there are really good young people out there. What great role models they make.

Congratulations to the players, their dedicated coaches, and the many parents who give their undying love and support. The Berkshire Force is a great name of the team. Good luck to all you girls in Florida, we'll be rooting for you and may the force be with you all for a great win. But remember to have fun.
