Former Buckeye Jamee Juarez helped her Chicago Bandits squad win the 2011 National Pro Fastpitch championship series last weekend in Sulphur, Louisiana.

The Bandits, which entered the series seeded third, were a perfect 4-0 in the NPF championship series, with wins over the Akron Racers (8-1 and 7-4) and the USSSA Florida Pride (10-3 and 4-3) to capture the Cowles Cup. Chicago last won the title in 2008. Description: kwit6432_juarez
