The Windham 14-year-old Babe Ruth All Star team is poised to make a run in the state tournament. The boys had to play in a 3-team, District 4 bracket last week, (Portland, Scarborough, Windham), to determine who would go to states. Windham beat Scarborough in the first game, 10-2, behind a complete game on the mound from Chris Naylor, and the whole team coming up with key hits. Portland then beat Scarborough 3-2, which meant Windham and Portland advance to the state tournament.
Windham then had to play Portland to determine who was going to be District 4 champion, and Portland won that game 5-2.
"The boys played very well", said Coach Brett Turenne.
The state tournament started Thursday, July 14th, at the Field of Dreams in Harrison. Windham played their first game on Friday versus the District 2 Champion. They then played Saturday morning. The team is also was scheduled to play two games on Sunday.
"We are excited about our chances at the tournament. We hope to play well and advance to regionals," said Turenne.
The 14-year-old All Stars are: Brady Afthim, Max Lauzier, Chris Naylor, Anthony West, Ben Childs, Cameron Joyce, Nolan Kent, Caleb McCartney, Mason Rosborough, Ryan Sargent and Noel Redlon.
The team is coached by Turenne, Jim McCartney and Paul Kent.
