Today's ABC 13 Team of the Week is the Rustburg Angels 9-and-10-year-old All-Stars. Rustburg won the state tournament to earn a trip to the Dixie World Series in Myrtle Beach. One of Rustburg's coaches is Katie Bigham, Katie Phillips in high school when she was a star pitcher for the Red Devils and later Liberty Flames. Katie's daughter Eden is also a pitcher. The Rustburg Angels open World Series play in Myrtle Beach Monday morning at 11 against North Carolina.
Eden Bigham, RUSTBURG ANGELS PITCHER, said "We're really close and we're a good hitting team...and fielding."
Aysia Jiovenetta, RUSTBURG ANGELS OUTFIELDER, said "We have good sportsmanship that if one person gets down, everybody helps to get 'em back up."
"What are you most looking forward to going to the World Series?"
Aysia said "The beach, the ocean and playing other teams."
Katie Bigham, RUSTBURG ANGELS COACH, said "I just wanted these girls to have this experience. Not everybody gets to go to a World Series and getting to go with my daughter and Dad helping coach, it's just a once-in-a-lifetime thing."
