On Friday afternoon, people in the Valley gathered at The Eastwood Mall to celebrate the accomplishments of Austintown's little league 12-and-under softball team. 

Young athletes, coaches, and supporters honored the team's journey to the World Series tournament in Greenville, NC this summer.

The team comprised of 13 girls, spent the season defeating teams from six different states. They took home state and regional titles and became United States Central Division Champions before vying for the top trophy.

The team made it to the third round of the world series tournament before their journey came to an end.

"It's been an absolute amazing ride all summer. Everything the girls accomplished, making it all the way to the world series. It has been amazing and an honor to coach these girls," Team Manager Matt Hamley, said.
