-A A +A

 FERN CREEK –  After a hot start the Mount Washington U-8 All-Stars cooled off quickly in the quarter-finals of the Babe Ruth Kentucky State Tournament on Saturday at Fern Creek Park in Louisville.

In the opening games of ‘pool’ play, the team coached by Dave Johnston slipped past Jeffersontown 15-13 and then crushed Fern Creek Orange by a 23-9 score. Those games were played on Thursday and Friday.

That left the team with the number two seed from the pool heading into the quarter-finals.

Unfortunately, the early magic was not there on Saturday afternoon as the best from Mount Washington were derailed by Barren County 15-4 in five innings of play.

The Under-8 Mount Washington All-Stars included Grace Bale, Elizabeth Baxley, Emma Brogan, Aubrey Ernst, Kayleigh Foster, Caroline Harbolt, Madelin Heady, Maddie Johnson, Kimberly Perkins, Hayla Puckett, Lacie Sullivan, Katelynn White, Hannah York and Taylor Pierce.

The head coach for the team was Dave Johnston and he was assisted by Tracy Bale and Kelvin White.
