Lower Southampton Youth Legion 16U Team Goes to State Tournament

Lower Southampton Youth Legion 16U Team was the first Lower South Legion Team to ever play in the state tournament.

Here’s some highlights of their AMAZING season:

  • 15-5 regular season earning #1 seed in the playoffs
  • Won the winner take all championship game 1-0 against Falls to advance to the regional tournament in Berwick, PA
  • 3-2 in the regional tournament earning a birth in the state tournament also in Berwick, PA
  • First Lower Southampton Jr or Sr American Legion Baseball team ever to advance to the state tournament
  • The state tournament had teams from the east and west playing for the state title.
  • Had an amazing showing finishing 3rd.  Only losses were to the eventual winner Upper Perk and runner up Penn Trafford

This team went into the regional and state tournament short-handed due to vacations and came together to play the best baseball they had played all year.  It was a true team effort, as contributions came from everyone on the team, up and down the line up.
