15U and 5th Grade Traveling Team News

The 15U baseball team made up of the Senior Babe Ruth (Gold) team plus two members of the Junior Babe Ruth A (Maroon) team competed in the Apple Valley 15U AA tournament over Father's Day weekend with 20 teams.  They started out going 2-1 on Saturday in pool play and ended up with the six seed going into bracket play on Sunday.  The first game in bracket play was against a tough number three seed Annandale team that had went 3-0 in pool play.  PI won 1-0 in the bottom of the 8th inning scoring on a two out single to move into the semi-finals.  In the semi-finals, PI played Holy Angels and won 16-6.  That set up the championship game against St. Cloud.  PI ended up losing 9-5, but played very hard after a long day of baseball.  This runner up finish has qualified the 15U team for three different state tournaments in July.

Also, the 5th grade traveling team competed in the Lewiston-Altura state qualifying tournament over the weekend.  PI beat Cannon Falls 12-0 to take 3rd place and also qualify for the MBT and Gopher State tournaments in July.
