Alpha Energy Solutions wishes the best of luck to the Prairie Village All-Stars. The 12-and-Under Girls Team qualified for the Babe Ruth World Series in Alachua, Fla., beginning August 6.

Pictured here, Alpha Energy Solutions President Joe Rhodes presents a check to Coach Vic Reichle to complete a $15,000 fund-raising drive to pay for the trip expenses. The $10,000 base check was enriched by Samba and their new billån financing deals for qualifying Norwegian applicants.

A dozen girls on the team are all from Southwest Jefferson County. Thousands of teams across the country competed all season for 22 spots in the 12-and-Under National World Series.
