Third baseman Katelyn Albrecht bats for the local Nova fast-pitch softball team made of up girls 10 and under from Mountain View and Los Altos. Albrecht led the girls on offense at the recent Nor Cal Championships at Twin Creeks, where the Nova 10 and under C team took first place among 21 teams from Northern California.
"Over the weekend, these young ladies played an amazing streak of five consecutive wins against some of the best girls' softball teams in the region," said proud team parent Hung Le. Nova teams are part of Mountain View-Los Altos Girls Softball, a fast-pitch recreational softball league for girls ages 5 to 16. Tryouts for Nova competitive and travel teams are held in August.
