The Austin Jays 10-year old All Stars went unbeaten in winning the Sartel Sabre Classic Tournament recently.

The title gave the Jays a trip to the state tourney.
Dayne Schara, Easton Meyer, Ethan Smith and Tayte Berg led the hitters while Cale Tupy, Brandon Kuhnke, Berg,and Gahvin Schafer shared mound duties.
In game three, Logan Brooks doubled to tie the game in bottom of the sixth and Meyer’s hit scored Brooks for the game-winning run.

Isaac Osgood, Isaiah Conway, Gage Helgeson led the hitting and Issac Nelsen, Sam Oelfke and Osgood pitched.
“I was really happy with the way we hit for our first tourney of the season and we were aggressive on the bases” said coach Brock Meyer.
