FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Sawnee Mountain Thunder 9U boys travel team had a rough start to a hot summer weekend of baseball in the Triple Crown Summer Shootout, held at Midway Park the weekend of June 23.
The boys fought hard to beat the Cherokee Reds 6-4 to win the Championship.
“This was a special win for us,” said Head Coach Paul Clewell. “Triple Crown tournaments have a reputation for attracting some of the best teams from the area. Considering the heat index and sun that all the boys endured over the course of the tournament, as well as the level of competition to overcome, we were very proud of this accomplishment.”
