Lacey Waldrop led Florida State to the NCAA College World Series and is the 2014 USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year. She is coming to Dream Fields for the Little League Senior Softball State Tournament.

Waldrop is the 2014 USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year. A junior right-hander, she led the Florida State Seminoles to a 55-7 record this season and the school’s first NCAA College World Series berth since 2004. She pitched 257 1/3 innings with a 38-5 record and a 1.01 ERA.

Waldrop also was named the ACC pitcher of the year.

She is a 2011 graduate of Thomas Dale High School and the daughter of Beth and Chuck Waldrop of Chester.

Waldrop will make a guest appearance during the kick-off picnic and registration for the state tournament at 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, at Dream Fields, according to Carroll Lee Ashburn. Some seven district championship teams from across the state will vie for the Virginia title and a shot at regional and national play.

Tournament action begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 17, at Dream Fields. Richmond County’s Senior All-Stars, which went unbeaten at 4-0 to win the District 15 trophy last week, received a bye in the first round of the state tournament. Wilson Little League’s Senior All Stars will play the District 7 champion in a first-round game. The winner of that contest will face Richmond County at 4 p.m. on July 17.
