The Yankees (Landrum boys) won the District 5 (Byrnes) summer league with a 9-1 record in the 13-15 year old group.
The Yankees played in two different leagues, playing four nights a week. They played in the District 1 league in Landrum, finishing with a 6-2 mark in second place. The team won its last game over previously unbeaten Campobello 6-1.
What made this 15-3 record from both leagues combined so special is that this group is made up of nine seventh graders, one eighth grader and two ninth graders, while most of the other teams they faced were mainly ninth and 10th graders.
Team members include J.D. Edwards, Jacob Corn, Jonah Corn, Seth Stewart, Joel Seay, Hadyn Padgett, Ryan Blackwell, Preston Dimsdale, Austin Stoltzfus, Jeremy Fancher, Keelan Sheridan and Ben Gowans.
The team was coached by head coach David Edwards, with assistant coaches Keith Corn, J.R. Padgett, Dave Gowans and Ronnie Blackwell.
