12U Bombers started the 2009 tourney ball campaign in the
USSSA Southeastern Wood Bat Championships in Cumming, GA.
The team was the only AAA squad in with a group of Majors
teams (the highest USSSA classification) and came out ready
to play against the toughest classification as they beat
the East Cobb Astros 5-3, in the first game of pool play, behind
stellar pitching and a smothering defense. It was a big
win against a strong travel team.
second game of pool play saw the Bombers fall to the Sevier
County (TN) Bears 8-3. The Bears brought a hefty 41-10 record against
the 1-0 Bombers. The first game of the tourney play pitted
the Bombers against cross town foes, the NYO Titans. NYO
took the game 9-2. The Bombers were slated to play the AAA
champion from the South Division, but a rainy weekend kept
the crossover championship from happening. The 1-2 record
did not reflect the strong play of the team, and the confidence
gained in this weekend should bode well for this upcoming
weekend's USSSA Substate Tournament in Stockbridge.
