La Vernia’s SWAT 12U select baseball team won first place at the 2016 Shiner Starplex Fall League Tournament!
The season for the tournament started in early September. The playoffs were a two-day tournament, with the first day seeding the teams for the final day, which was single elimination.
The SWAT team won its first game and lost its second game on Saturday. On Sunday, the team won its first two games, setting them up for the final Championship game against Citius. After nail-biter back-and-forth leads, SWAT took the field for the final inning, with less than 7 minutes left in the game and the score 7-5, Citius. SWAT took the lead at 10-7, with Citius having the final at-bat. With some great defense, SWAT made the final out to win the tournament!
The gold championship rings were handed out to the SWAT players, and the silver rings went to the runner-up, Citius.
