Grand County Junior All Stars battle for state championship
July 28, 2009
The Grand County Junior All Stars baseball team was scheduled to play in the championship round against Colorado Springs on Tuesday evening in Rifle.
A win Tuesday would mean taking on Colorado Springs again tonight, Wednesday, to seal the state championship.
The 13- to 14-year-old athletes have been competing in the state finals since last Saturday, with a victory against Rifle, a loss against Colorado Springs and a 5-4 “come-back-from-behind-bottom-of-the-seventh” win against Platt Canyon, according to coach James Newberry. Two more wins would mean a spot in the western regionals in Texas.
