IMLAY CITY — The Foster Oilers 12U softball team, which lists Imlay City's Lexa Forti, Capac's Madelyn Roberson plus Almont's Brooklyn Bunch and Lydia LaCavera on their roster, earned a first-place finish at the NSA State Championships recently.

The tournament was contested June 15-16 in Midland.

Foster Oilers started things off Saturday, June 15 with a 6-1 win over Expos.

They then improved to 2-0, thanks to a 10-2 victory over Legacy.

That was followed by a 1-0 loss to Next Level, relegating the squad to the loser's bracket.

It was there Foster Oilers notched a 3-2 triumph against Legacy; a 6-1 win over Batbusters; and a 6-5 semifinal victory against Next Level.

That meant Foster Oilers would have to defeat Aftershock twice to bring home a top finish.

The team took the first step in that direction with a 4-0 triumph and followed it up with a 5-2 win, assuring themselves of a number one showing.

Alayna Esselink (Richmond), Tabitha Furlin (St. Clair), Lorelei Mahon (Macomb), Ashley Stafford (Richmond), Katie Schuboy (Richmond), Emmi Hildreth (Richmond) and Olivia Volkman (Marine City) joined them on the championship squad. They were coached by Vicki Simmons with assistance from Brian Bunch and Bob Esselink.
