Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- A group of 14-year-old girls from Superior, Wis. will head to Oklahoma next week for a national softball tournament and to help in the cleanup efforts after the ravaging effects of this week's tornadoes.

The Twin Ports Rampage has earned an invitation to the USSSA National Challenge Tournament, which will pit them against teams from all across the country.

"It was an honor to be asked, for one thing," head coach Stewart Goldbert said, "and then to be able to pull together the resources to make it happen, I was very impressed. The parents and the kids did the fundraising, so I'm happy we could make it happen for them."

The Rampage will leave May 29 for the tournament with plans to spend some time helping the victims of this week's tornadoes in Oklahoma. The games will be played just over six miles outside of Moore, Okla., which was one of the cities hit hard by the twister.

More on the team's efforts in assisting the tornado victims can be seen on Friday's KBJR6 and Range 11 News at Six.
