Little League Section 1 tournaments for the Major League divisions were held this past week, and Post was well represented by its youth. Both the girls softball and boys baseball all-star teams advanced out of District play into the sectional tournaments this year.
The 11-12 year old girls began the tournament on Friday July 8th. They fell to Lubbock 17-0 that first evening. The team rallied in game two on Sunday evening and defeated Borger 20-19. This setup a rematch for the championship with Lubbock on Monday night, at the Lubbock Sports Complex. The team lost the final game 27-2, but they came away with a 2nd place finish overall in the tournament. Pitchers for the team were Katie Quintana, Lexi Antillon, and Victoria Gutierrez. We're "very proud of these girls!", said Rebecca Quintana.
The 11-12 year old boys also suffered an opening round loss on Friday night, losing 12-0 against Midland West. The team followed up by posting a 7-3 victory over Fabens Cotton Valley on Sunday afternoon in Maxey Park. Post was eliminated from the tournament in game three, losing 14-4 to Childress. Pitchers through the tournament were AJ Escodedo, Kace Lott, and Austin Britton. "Everyone was proud of the effort put forth by these boys.", said Randy Britton.
