Introducing the Casper Cobras girls fast pitch softball team!

(Casper, Wyo.) - Did you know that Wyoming is one of only three states across the United States that does not offer softball or baseball at the high school level? The Casper Cobras, a new youth softball team wants to give girls the opportunity to play. Head Coach Michael Allen began the team at the beginning of this year with the goal of giving girls ages *13-16 *the opportunity to play softball and pursue their passion. "We're new, and we're starting from scratch," said Coach Allen. At this time, Casper Cobras is a team made up of 9 girls, but they're looking for more players to fill the team. "We really want to find more girls who want to play. I'll coach anyone who is willing to be coached," said Allen. The team is a competitive girls 16-U fast pitch softball team. Throughout the season, the team will be traveling to tournaments in Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska.

"I believe we can showcase the talents of our girls," said Coach Allen. "We hope this will give them an opportunity to attract attention of college scouts. This will give the athletes another avenue for attending a college of their choice." The Casper Cobras are gearing up for the 2016 season, and they're looking for girls ages 16 and under who love the sport of softball and want to play on a local team. There are no tryouts, so everyone will play.
