Key West Lady Conchs Travel Softball Champions Day


The Key West City Commission this week lauded the Key West Lady Conchs 8U and 14U Travel Softball Teams as they finished a remarkable 2019 season by each winning the State Championship for their division during the USSSA South Florida State Softball Tournament.

The 8U team captured the state title by going undefeated in the tournament with a perfect 5-0 record. The 14U team went 6-1, including five straight shutout victories in bringing their state title home to Key West.

“These young athletes illustrate what a team can accomplish together with hard work, dedication and self-confidence,” reads the proclamation setting aside a day in honor of the teams. “It is with great pride that we congratulate and applaud the 8U champions: Summer Bailey, Charley Bracher, Liana Brown, Kaleaya Dickerson, Jaelyn Estevez, Campbell Fischer, Arianna Garcia, Carlie Hamlin, Lucy Katz, Chloe Kongos, A'Aliyah Mcleod, Gabriella Pichardo and Evaline Zanetti and the 14U champions: Emily Bracher, Cheyenne Carr, Ty Marie Cervantes, Isabella Franco, Ku'uleilani Haia, Scarlet Niles, Madelyn Perusse, Caroline Smith, Montunique Van Staden, Sophia Wardlow and Trecia Whetstone.”

City Attorney Shawn Smith, a long-time coach of the league, noted “it is truly remarkable that the youngest set of athletes and the oldest set of athletes in our league are bringing home championships.”

He commended the hard work of the young women as well as the amazing support of the parents and sponsors.

Following the accolades in the commission chambers, the teams boarded Conch Trains for a victory parade around the island.
