Southern Teams Wins Two Junior Tournaments

On Friday, June 30, Southern won two Junior tournaments, in Class C and Class E. In Class C, the team coached by Dave Veen won in dramatic fashion. Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning, the first two batters of the inning were retired. The next batter, Jonathan Grit singled, followed by a single by David Veen. Kyle Wollet was then hit by a pitch to load the bases with two outs. On a 2-2 pitch, Joe Mead drove the ball over the centerfielder's head to score all three baserunners on a close play at the plate. What a finish!!
