The Kentucky Clovers — a team from the Louisville area — completed a nine-game sweep and took top honors in the 65-team National Softball Association’s Fastpitch Northern “B” World Series in the 12-and-under division Saturday in Fishers, Ind.

The Kentucky Clovers is a team comprised of “Dixie Highway kids,” according to coach Tony Young, who coaches softball at Holy Cross High School. Hannan Stucker, who is on Young’s staff at Holy Cross, also coached the Clovers, who started in pool play on Tuesday.

“We started this organization just one year ago last August,” Young said. “To do this in just one year, we’re really excited. We’re hoping this gets out the name of our organization.

“We just want to help these kids reach their dreams — dreams of playing college softball,” Young said.

The Kentucky Clovers advanced to the World Series by winning the state tournament in Lexington, Ky., in late June.

In other divisions, the Kentucky Clovers placed in the top 25 in the 14-and-under division, and in the top 20 in the 16-and-under division.
