The Southeast Stix travel baseball team wrapped up its season last weekend in Cincinnati at the Kings Island Invitational.

The boys showed up ready to play, going 3-0 in pool play and earning a spot in the Gold Elimination Bracket. The Stix defeated 5 Star Midwest 15-3 in the opening round of elimination to advance to the semifinals. Unfortunately, the boys were defeated by the Springboro Panthers in a hard-fought battle to end their day.

The boys finished their season with a 20-8-2 record, two tournament championships, and finished tied for 3rd in the Indiana U.S. Specialty Sports Association State Tournament.

The Stix club is comprised of 3rd-grade students from Greensburg, North Decatur, Batesville and St. Mary’s.
