BRATTLEBORO — The 9-11-year-old Addison County Little League Baseball All-Star team defeated host Brattleboro, 6-3, on Saturday to claim the age group title and finish an unbeaten 3-0 run through the Championship Tournament.
The AC 9-11 team will next play in the New England/Mid Atlantic region, with the team’s first game scheduled for August 1 against Washington, DC in Beverly, Mass.
On the weekend of July 16-17, AC defeated Champlain and Lyndon to reach last Saturday’s state championship game as the only undefeated team in the four-team tournament. Brattleboro had to beat AC twice to win, but AC took care of business on Saturday.
On Sunday July 10, AC ended their successful run in the District 1 tournament by defeating Shelburne, 13-2, in a win-win final.
AC have won three games in a row while facing elimination in this tournament, including knocking out Shelburne in the final.
The AC players are Timmy Wright, Luke Wing, Jake Wing, Tucker Sheldrick, Oakley Hunt, Rhys Del Giacco, Brady Duguay, Thatcher Leggett, Grady Coleman, Grayson Conrad and Ezra Bliven. Jesse Wing and Todd Duguay coach the team.
