The 8U Wranglers earned second place in the annual West U Summer Slam, marking a happy one-year anniversary for the team, which formed in August 2013. The 10-0 game against Westbury was a highlight, with Fletcher Dowell, Parker Manley and Niko Charlton-Ouw each getting three hits. Coach Clay Manley said the game was “the first time that I can recall an 8-year-old team ever accomplishing” a no-error game. Pictured is Parker Broach, who led the 8U tournament with two home runs. Teammates are Wyatt Childers, Bennett Grossman, Dylan Jenkins, Sam Kennett, Tate Organ, Jayan Shultz and Jack Ward.
