The Acers, a 10-under girls fastpitch team based in Auburn, won the National Softball Association state champion for its age bracket recently in Pasco.
Coached by Pat Smith, the Acers defeated the Lynnwood Patriots in the championship game, 10-0, giving them a sweep of their four state games.
That will send the Acers to Gardnerville, Nev., for the NSA Western World Series. Play began Sunday and continues through Friday.
In their four state games, the Acers outscored their opponents, 41-6.
Since forming as a team last September, the Acers have won eight of the 10 tournaments in which they have played, compiling a 47-2 record.
The 10-under group is one of six teams within the Acers organization, which has been around since 1991.
