They went down to Warner Robins un­de­feated and came back with two losses to Peachtree City and Warner Robins.

Peachtree won 18-10 and Warner Robins won 12-7.

Ac­cord­ing to head coach Kyle El­lis the team walked a lot of bat­ters and they re­ally beat them­selves.

“We strug­gled with our pitch­ing,” El­lis said.

El­lis added that teams from the other tour­na­ments were bet­ter and that he felt if they went down there again they would beat both teams.

El­lis said the boys were used to win­ning and used the trip to Warner Robins as a chance to have a good time and go swim­ming.

Most of the teams that New­ton played were all eight year olds. El­lis be­lieves next year can be their year.

El­lis said, “Next year if we can all stay to­gether, [the op­po­si­tion] is not gonna have a chance.”
