Trumann's 9 and 10 year old All Stars wins South District 4 Championship

The Trumann 9 and ten year old All Stars fought from behind in the losers bracket to claim District Championships July 4th weekend in Harrisburg. Trumann had a tough break and had to claw their way though the bracket to meet up against McCrory in the finals plus had to beat them twice.

The first game in the finals Trumann defeated McCrory 14-4 then they turned around and had to play the game to claim district and defeated McCrory once again to wrap up the tourney with a 17-6 two game seep.

Trumann earned the right to travel to Newport on July 12 - 18 to play in the 9 and 10 year old state tournament. Coach Stevens told the Democrat, "The reason these boys are winners is because they're all scrappers. You can never count them out of any game."
