Nevada received the James Farrell Award of Excellence for hosting the 2013 Girls Class A 14-Under Northern National Fast Pitch Championships at the SCORE Complex in Nevada, July 31–Aug. 4, 2013.

During the championships, central Iowa welcomed 31 teams from eight states across the Midwest.

The James Farrell Award of Excellence is named in honor of former St. Louis ASA Commissioner and National Office staff member James Farrell. The James Farrell Award of Excellence is awarded to the cities that do an outstanding job of hosting ASA National Championship tournaments. To receive the award, cities must attain an overall rating of 95 percent or greater from the ASA representative, umpire-in-chief and the national office.

Julie Weeks and Seann DeMaris presented the award to Rhonda Maier, assistant director of Nevada Parks and Recreation, during the March 10 Nevada City Council meeting.
