The Junior Panthers (16u) won 4 games, averaging nearly 9 runs per game, to take the 2018 Ohio American Legion State title. On the defensive side of the plate, the Panthers only gave up 3 runs total.
Scioto Valley teams were well represented in the final four, which pitted two South Central Ohio League (SCOL) teams against one another in the semifinal: Chillicothe Post 757 and Waverly Post 142. Chillicothe topped Waverly 7-0 to advance to the championship. In the other semifinal game, Circleville topped Utica Post 92 in a tight defensive game 1-0 to advance.
The SCOL teams play in ALB Region V, which will continue to be tough over the next few years as these teams move into the Senior ALB ranks.
Great job, Panthers, and great job SCOL!
