Congratulations to Jacob, Matthew N. and the 8U Red all-star team for a great run in the PONY South Region Zone tournament in High Point this weekend!!! 8U Red went 3-1 in Pool play, and lost in bracket play by 1 run to a strong Western Branch Gold team.
Congratulations to Caleb and the 7U Blue all-star team as they won the Silver bracket of the NC AAU 8U Summer World Series in Oxford this weekend!!! Editor’s Note: 7U Blue got a raw deal as due to weather, they were only able to play one pool play game – a game they lost to the eventual gold bracket champions by one run - whereas most other teams played two, thus were seeded based off one game and assigned to the Silver bracket. Nonetheless, 7U Blue took care of business in the Silver bracket to bring home the hardware and win their second 8U tournament this summer.
This marks the end of the all-stars season for Caleb and the 7U Blue team. Congratulations to 7U Blue as they won Cal Ripken Area and State titles this summer, as well as two 8U local area travel tourneys!! In fact, 7U Blue compiled a 20-2 record this summer (10-0 in Ripken play) with the two losses both coming to 8U teams by 1 run each!!
Here is the official team picture of your 7U State Champions!!!
