Four Langley fastpitch players are hoping to help the Delta Heat burn the competition.

Marley Parker, Taylor Gillis, Montana Turnovitski and Haili Pettifer are members of the Delta Heat 96 girls fastpitch team which is competing at the prestigious ASA girls 16U national championships.

The tournament begins July 28 in San Jose, Cal. and features more than 100 teams.

The Heat earned a spot in the tournament thanks to a 6-1 record at a qualifying tournament against teams from Washington state and Oregon.

In the final game, they doubled up the Oregon Titans 6-3 behind a 3-for-3 performance from Parker, which included a monster home run.
