The Tallahassee Merchants U14 softball team is headed to San Diego, California to compete for a national championship.

The Merchants are comprised of athletes from both South Georgia and North Florida. This hand-picked squad will compete against 121 other teams from across the country,

To get to nationals, the Merchants went 5-0 in Clearwater to become Florida's fall champs.

Their work is not done.

"Together is better than us being apart because talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships," first baseman Mackenzie Puckett said.

"We play very well as a team and there are no individual players on the team, we all work together," catcher Taylor Thorp said.

"I think we are excited about just being over there, that far away from Florida," pitcher Elizabeth Hightower said.
