An 8-year-old all-star softball team from Chelsea finished with a 4-2 record in the National Softball Association state tournament June 24-26 in Orange Beach.

The Chelsea all-stars won two area tournaments and a region tournament to earn the right to compete in the state tournament. The team entered the state tournament with a perfect 16-0 record and finished with a 20-2 mark during the all-star season.
