The Unicoi County Little League 10-11
year-old all-stars recently returned to Erwin
after a weekend stint in the Tournament of
Champions softball invitational held in Luray,
Va., held July 26-30. The Lady Devils fi nished
1-2 in pool play and wrapped up the tournament
with a fourth-place fi nish.
After a sluggish game one start, the pressure
faded away, according to head coach Jeff
Day one of the tournament, our girls
were in awe, Selvage said. We were real
impressed with the area. The facilities were
great and it was just like playing at a small college
for our girls. I think all of that carried into
our fi rst game … we got off to a rough start.
The squad lost on Friday to West Virginia 1,
6-0, but lost the starry eyes fast and brought
the lumber the next day with a 15-4 thumping
of West Virginia 2. The Lady Devils qualifi
ed for the consolation bracket fi nal and a
rematch against West Virginia 1. It was close
throughout the games entirety but the Lady
Devils would fall just shy, 2-1.
