The Sun Valley High softball team will be playing for the North Carolina 3A State Championship this weekend.

The Spartans will face C.B. Aycock High from Pikeville, NC. The Golden Falcons finished 21-3 overall.

Hard work, building team chemistry and natural ability was all part of Sun Valley getting this far -- but players are throwing plenty of credit towards a new "team mascot."

A shopping cart that was discovered mid-season behind their home field.

"We came and hit one day when we didn't have practice and we just saw it out in the field," "So we were like, 'Hey, there's a shopping cart. We can use it in practice to put our balls in.' So we brought it to practice and coach Enloe didn't really use it. He was like, 'We're not using a shopping cart.'"

But the shopping cart stuck around and Sun Valley is 12-0 riding the four-wheeled grocery-grabber. In the one road game they did not take the cart on -- they lost 5-0.

"We are not going to change routines," coach Rob Enloe said. "We are very superstitious which is why at Walnut Creek (state championship) tomorrow there will be a shopping cart unloaded from Sun Valley."

The team has named it's shopping cart "Sugar."

The best-of-three championship series will take place in Raleigh, beginning Friday at 7 p.m. Game 2 will be Saturday at 11 a.m. and if needed -- a Game 3 will follow later in the afternoon.

The Spartans won the Southern Carolina Conference with an 8-2 record -- 24-5 overall.

    We all have heard of the saying, “a dog is a man’s best friend," it may sound a bit cliche but it’s true for Fred Shrill and his dog Tucker. “I wouldn’t take the world or him,” said Fred as he smiled.

    Friday, for my assignment, I was tasked with a ride-along in a Global Rallycross car, at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Cars that go zero-to-60 in 1.9 seconds -- that's faster than a formula one car. We're talking about machines with absurd power. Not a bad gig... But enough to make you a little skittish...
