Last week members of the team were honored at the Forks City Council meeting at City Hall.
A proclamation recognizing the members of the team was read at the meeting.
Council member Bruce Guckenberg said that a sign is in the works for the north end of Forks to commemorate the team's achievement.
The team's 12-game winning streak resulted in both the state tournament and regional 10U softball titles.

Forks then went 6-0 at the regional championships in the desert heat of Meridian, Idaho, outscoring the other teams 41-9 in capturing its first ever regional title.
Overall, Forks outscored its state and regional opponents 126-12, or by an average of 10.5-1 in every game.
