The Del Norte Little League Junior softball All-Stars are ready to make some noise in section play.

The team, consisting of girls 13 and 14 years old will play at the section event in Chico starting on Saturday in double elimination play.

Head coach Rick White said the team is strong in all aspects of the game, especially with defense and pitching, and they are good hitters as well.

“It’s a true all-star team,” he said. “It’s been a blast coaching them. They’re just a fun group.”

The girls bring the right attitude to the team by having an enjoyable time with their friends, laughing and joking around, but being serious and focused when they take the field to play a game, their coach said.
