Congratulations to the 16U Navy for winning the Seattle Elite League tournament tonight at Bannerwood Park.
The team had a great regular season to nab the fourth seed in the tournament and ran undefeated through the brackets to set up a three game series with the Kirkland Merchants.
City cruised through game one, but lost game two as Kirkland fought back to even the series. Game 3 looked in jeopardy as City came to the plate down one run in the top of the seventh. The team loaded the bases and executed two perfect squeeze bunts to score the game tying and go ahead runs. This was enough to seize momentum and the boys tacked on 9 runs in the inning to seal the title.
Congratulations to Coach Rongcal and Coach Nagy!
