A belated shout out to the
14U Hickory Hornets for winning the Ripken Myrtle Beach
"Turn Two" skills competition. Not only did the guys
win the competition, but they did it in style with a record
setting time of 28.07, breaking the previous record of
28.70. Not only that but we've been informed that not only
was it the fastest time ever for a 14U team but it was the
fastest time of any 90' diamond team ever for ages 13-18.
The competition involves turning 4 different double plays as
quickly as possible.
In addition to their record setting
performance in the skills competition, the Hornets
advanced to the final 8 in the winners bracket of the Ocean
Breeze Tournament and finished 6th overall. The guys had a
great season this year, improving from a record of 8-30 in
2012 to a terrific 20-14-1 record in 2013. Great job
to all the 14U Players and Coaches !
