 The Under-9 Mount Washington All-Stars made a strong showing last week in the combined District 10/11 tournament at Des Pres Park in Louisville that was hosted by the Hikes Point Optimist.

The tough loss came in the first game of the five-team event when coach Pat kelly’s team fell to Hikes Point 12-0. The team came back the next night and blitzed St. Matthews 17-4 before being required to play two games on Friday. Wins in both games would have advanced the team to the East Kentucky State Tournament. Mount Washington got the first win, beating Fern Creek 9-5, but then came up short in a heartbreaking 4-2 loss to Jeffersontown.

Team members for the 2011 Under-9 Mount Washington All-Stars were Jeremy Riggs, Bryant Miles, Blake Rhoades, Addison Phillips, Tyler Mozingo, Hunter Brogan, Luke Gentry, Zak Perdew, Noah Kessler, Mason Kelley, Seth Jutz and Jacob Benson.

Pat Kelley was the head coach and he was assisted by Damon Perdew, Keith Brogan and Matt Mozingo.
