The Jerseyville Little League 9-10 All-Star Team began their tournament play back on July 3 with pool play. On July 9, the team began the district finals; only to suffer a tough loss the very next day. This loss moved them to the losers' bracket, but merely made them stronger. This "soon-to-be"
champion team fought their way back, winning four games in four consecutive days. With one days rest, the team came back to face Beardstown, the team that originally bummed them to the losers' bracket, in the District 17 championship game. The Jerseyville Little League 9-10 boys reigned
victorious with an 8-5 win over Beardstown. The team now travels to Tuscola, Illinois to face Decatur, the District 3 Champions, on Saturday, July 21 at 7:00pm. A possible three games stand between this amazing group of boys and the Sectional Championship. Keep up the outstanding work and bring home another championship!
