Congratulations to the Carolina Cardinals

The Carolina Cardinals under the leadership of our NC ASA's JO Commissioner, Rick McHone, WON the ASA/USA Girls Fast Pitch 18U National Championship in Salem, VA today. There were 89 teams from across the United States entered in the tournament, and the Cardinals went undefeated. The Cardinals captured the title this year after finishing runner-up in last year's national championship. That is quite an impressive record for Rick and his team.

By winning the championship the Cardinals become the second team from NC to win a national title. Ray Chandler's Carolina Cardinals team was the first team to win one as they also won the 18U national a few years ago.

Since becoming our J.O. Commissioner, Rick McHone has done a fantastic job each and every year. Our number of youth teams has increased each year, our youth tournaments all across NC have really grown including championship events, and the individual registration program which Rick manages on his own has become quite popular. We have more and more teams playing in national tournaments and a lot are doing very well.
