Oklahoma State Championships - FINAL Update

The 12U, 13U and 14U baseball teams competed in the Oklahoma USSSA State Championships over the weekend.  The teams battled top teams across the state in hot and windy temperatures over a 3-day period.  The 12U and 13U both played in the Championship game in their age group.

The 12U team was seeded #14 out of 17 teams and swept through the brackets knocking off the #3-seed Pryor, #6-seed Sand Springs, #1-seed SS Sox and beat the #2-seed Mannford Pirates twice to capture the 12U Oklahoma State Championship!

The 13U team went in the State Tournament as the #4-seed.  They beat the #5-seed Muskogee and the #1-seed Stillwater and then lost to #7-seed Yukon.  They then played the #5-seed Muskogee again and beat them 10-2 for a shot in the championship game against Yukon.  Yukon beat the Jags10-5 in the finals.  The Jags finished as 13U Oklahoma State Runner-ups.
