U10 Boston Bandits: State Champions!
The Boston Bandits U10 team has had a very successful summer thus far and the sky is the limit with this group. The team has impressively compiled a record of 24 wins versus only 4 losses while winning three highly competitive tournaments, including the ASA Massachusetts State Championship. Relying on strong pitching, timely hitting and great fundamentals, the Bandits have proven to be a handful for the best teams across New England. Strong showings in six regional tournaments included tournament victories at the Chelmsford Mother’s Day Classic and the Think Pink Tournament in Tewksbury. This success was then culminated with an undefeated run through the Mass State Tournament in Grafton.
The Bandits then went off to compete at the ASA National Tournament! Beginning on Thursday, July 30th the team competed against some of the best U10 teams in the country. Although their road was cut shorter than they hoped, the team performed great and gained the respect of everyone they faced. Great job ladies!
