The 12U Jaguars team recently competed in the USSSA 12U Oklahoma State Tournament in Sand Springs, Ok. The Jaguars entered the 16-team tournament as a 13-seed. Jags won their first two games before suffering their first loss to the eventual State Champion. The Jags then had to win four games in the loser's brackets to get to the finals. Jags never quit attitude propelled them to three straight wins before losing in a heart breaker as the opposing team beat the Jags by 1 run in the last inning to reach the finals. Coaches Mark Raper, Brian Kelly, Rod Merrill and Andrew Moss did a great job of coaching the boys and were pleased with the player's resiliency to battle all weekend.
The team also finished in 2nd place in the Broken Arrow Competitive League. The 12U team finished the season with an overall record of 16 Wins 16 Losses 2 Ties.
