Rain Washes Out the Illinois State Tournament for 11U Blue
For the 5th time this season, our weekend was cut short by heavy rain and flooding. Having circled this weekend as one of our goal tournaments, it was especially disappointing. We had one bad inning (the first inning of our first game) and didn't allow a single run after that in pool play. We advanced to the championship bracket after a winning a tight game on Saturday night (in the middle of a downpour) only to wake up on Sunday to learn that the overnight storms washed out the fields, that additional rain was expected throughout the day, and the tournament was cancelled.
The 11U Bandit's Blue are back in action June 26-28 in the Elgin Super Regional as a Qualifier for the Game Day National Championship Tournament.
