The 10U Crusaders were back in action this past weekend competing in the East Tennessee Ballyard Bash- USSSA 11U Division at Whitetop Park (Bristol,TN). This tournament would field some of the top local 11U AA and AAA teams in the surrounding Northeast Tennessee/ North Carolina region.
The 10U Crusaders over the past two weeks have competed against high level competition in the Atlanta, GA Select 30 NIT & the USSSA Spring Challenge 11U Division (Domtar Park- Kingsport,TN) with impressive performances but coming up a little short. Today would be a different story as the 10U Crusaders would complete an impressive road to the Finals with marquee wins over East TN Avengers, Washington County Express, Diamond Elite and Johnson City Thunder with the powerhouse Volunteer Falcons 11U waiting in the Championship Game.
The Crusaders 10U would find their selves down 6 runs early in the Championship game contest only to rally with a 9 run 4th inning capped with a colossal Grand Slam Home Run by 2nd Baseman – Mo Ward. The Crusaders would continue on to win the game and title with a final score of 17-7.
Great job to each and every player! The lesson of resilience and to never give up was on full display in your efforts. The parents and coaching staff are proud of you for your accomplishments! Excellent Pitching and Situational Hitting performances this weekend from all!
The 10U Crusaders are on the road next weekend to compete for the Beast of The East- Select 30 Major Division Title in Charlotte,NC. Good luck young men!
