The Lady Bombers secured the Little League District 4 championship about two weeks ago by defeating Holly, which advanced them to sectionals against the District 7 champs. The state tournament will take place at Sanford Village Park in Sanford, Michigan, near Midland. Games start on July 11 and continue through the week.

The 12U team is joined by the 10U Lady Bombers, who will participate in the state tournament in their age bracket beginning at the end of July.
