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.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PLAYERS, COACHES & FAMILIES!
