Lady Warriors Fastpitch Softball
About the Lady Warriors
"In it to Win it!"
In 1999, a competitive fastpitch softball organization known as the Lady Warriors was formed in Lafayette Colorado. We began with 4 teams and grew to support up to 9 teams annually, at various age and skill levels. We are very proud of our past successes and how many young ladies benefited from participating. It's estimated that over 50 girls received some form of sponsorship or college scholarships from their fastpitch participation.
We are proud of the fact that our Teams secured 10 different Colorado State Championships in ASA, USSSA, Triple Crown and AFA!
Our National exposure resulted in a 2002 USSSA 14A National 3rd Place Finish, 2006 18A Triple Crown World Series 2nd Place Finish and the 2013 16A ASA National Champion!
Thanks to Kyle Hancock, Randy Davenport and Kevin Joseph for their videos, photos, website and multimedia contributions!
Our Coaches and team parent-volunteers are second to none and we will highlight those folks and the incredible effort and time they put forth.
