The New Tazewell 9-10 year old All Star team once again won the District 6 championship game, June 30. The banner was their third in as many years.
Bean Station’s Knockouts finished as the tournament runners-up.
The New Tazewell team led three to one until the fourth inning. During that inning, they pushed their lead out to 10-1 and added another run in the fifth and final inning to end the contest at 11-1.
Carabeth Myatt now leads the team that Mandalyn Noe usually coaches and she was impressed by her team’s performance, “I’m proud of our girls for playing really good softball early and for playing together as a team. Everyone on the team contributed to this win including the parents, players and coaches.”
The team will next head to Arlington, Tennessee, to compete in the state tournament. It’s a long trip as the city is located near Memphis.
The team consists of London Noe, Katie Fultz, Emma Myatt, Madison Lynch, Reagan Essary, Lily Norris, Madison Ferguson, Morgan Honeycutt, Erica Keck and Avery Ferguson. They are coached by Myatt, Eric Keck and Brian Ferguson.
