The Western Region Junior Softball Tournament got off on a high note as former Canyon del Oro and University of Arizona standout pitcher Kenzie Fowler addressed the athletes from Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Utah, Alaska, California and Arizona at the Omni Tucson National. Fowler, a dominant youth athlete, was able to relate to the participants and prepare them to play as teammates in the tournament taking place at Artur Pack and set to end on July 19.

The winner will advance to Kirkland, Washington to paly in the Junior League Softball World Series, starting on July 29.
