The Southeast Stix 9-under travel baseball team competed in the USSSA April Attack Tournament April 13-14 in Columbus. Although the tournament was shortened due to inclement weather, the boys were able to earn championship honors by going undefeated in pool play while allowing only three combined runs thanks to excellent pitching and defense.

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