Pardon the dust our web site is under construction

The Langhorne Lightning is a dynamic competitive travel organization focused on the whole athlete.  We have brought into our organization former college players to lead our training and player development.  The focus of our program is to ensure our athletes have a great experience and have the opportunity to play softball at the college level.  We look forward to seeing you at Community Park for the upcoming 2020-21 season.


Thanks to everyone that came out to tryouts this year.  The Langhorne Lighting is proud to have 7 travel teams this upcoming season.  Stay tuned for a new website coming soon.  If you are interested in supporting or playing for Lightning Travel Softball please contact me directly at

14U Coach Lauren Creamer

My name is Lauren Creamer. I began playing softball when I was 5 years old and began playing travel ball at 8. I played at Neshaminy High School from 2009-2013. While there, I was named to a SOL Conference team in my sophomore through senior years. I was also inducted into the Trenton Softball Hall of Fame in 2013. In my senior season, my team and I made it to the state championship game at Penn State.  After high school, I continued my softball career at Susquehanna University, where I was a four-year starter. Freshman year, I played first, third, and right field. Sophomore through senior year, I split my time between first base and being the DH. I was named Landmark Conference Player of the Week 6 times within my four years. I was also named to the Landmark Conference first team all four years. I am also lucky enough to break and tie multiple records held by the school. These records include home runs, sacrifice bunts, doubles, and batting average, among others. After college, I went on to my dream job of being a math teacher. I currently teach Geometry at Philadelphia Academy Charter High School. I’m looking forward to pushing these young ladies to be the best versions of themselves, both on and off the field!
