Portland Kickballers Going to World Championship

The Forecaster:
"The Portland All Stars Only are the first kickball team from Maine to participate in the world championships, now in its 12th year. The team will be one of 72 competing in the Founders Cup World Kickball Championship Tournament on Oct. 10 at Desert Breeze Park in Las Vegas.

Since their formation about a year and a half ago, the team has gone 42-0 and is now ranked No. 1 in the nation, according to Courtney Silvagney of the World Adult Kickball Association.

But still, team member Sarah Nelson said the group is unproved on the national circuit and an underdog heading into Saturday's contest."
