WILLINGBORO – The Willingboro Police Athletic League U-15 softball team completed a rare repeat in June by winning the Riverside Youth Athletic Association softball league for the second year in a row.
Stephanie Meredith, commissioner of the Willingboro PAL softball said the team was the only squad made up of mostly African-American players just learning the game. Meredith said, though, the girls determination and willingness to represent came shining through.
The Diamond went 6-1-1 and then beat Riverside for the league title in June.
“What makes them so special is their attitude and love for the game,” Meredith said. “They work hard and work together. They play for each other. They have a desire to win and be successful. They love this town and have the desire to showcase the talent they have here in Willingboro.”
