The Heard County Braves 10 and under All-Star baseball team went undefeated in the District Tournament during the last week of June at the Bowdon Recreation Center.
In game one of the tournament, the Braves demolished Mt. Zion 18-2 as Caden Raines and Tray Owens combined to allow only two runs on the mound. The game was called after three innings because of the mercy rule.
In game two, the boys took on arch rival and hosts the Bowdon Red Devils. The Braves held off a late rally by the Devils to win 9-7 in six innings. Dale Thornhill, Tray Owens, and Will Hammett combined on the pitching duties.
The game saw several lead changes before the Braves were able to bring it home. The Braves took on Bowdon once again in the district championship game and the Braves came out on top 12-6 top advance to the state playoffs.
Congrats to the 10 and under Braves All-Stars for their outstanding performance! (Info submitted by Christy Thornhill)
