12-year-olds clinch state berth

An undefeated run in District 7 play clinched a state tournament berth for the Appanoose County 11-12 year old all-stars.

The state tournament will be held from July 19-26 in Centerville. Appanoose County will hope to capitalize on home field advantage for a state title and regional tournament trip.

To open district play on July 1, Appanoose County recorded a 13-5 win over Monroe County. A total of 16 strikeouts from McCain Oden helped Appanoose to a 2-1 win victory over Lucas County on July 3.

On July 6, Appanoose beat Ottumwa National 13-0 in a game that was initially postponed due to rain.

They recorded a 9-4 win over Jefferson County last Tuesday and a 14-2 win over Davis County last Wednesday.

Appanoose officially clinched their tournament berth with a 15-0 win against Ottumwa American on Friday. But, just to make things even more certain, they won their final contest in Batavia over Ja-Wa-Kee by an 11-0 score on Saturday.

The 11-12 year old team is the second all-star team from Appanoose County to clinch a state tournament berth. The 10-11 year old team also won their district and will advance to a state tournament.
