The 8U Drillers (pictured) reached the championship game at the Global NIT tournament at Baseball USA. After a long weekend of games, the team took second place in the tournament. The Drillers, who attend Frostwood, Rummel Creek, Bunker Hill and Wilchester elementary schools, have only been playing together since June. In that short amount of time, they have already won three tournament rings. Coached by David Stephens, Jason Schultz, Brian Merchant and Chris Simmons, the Drillers are (top row, from left) Luke Schultz, Henry Flynn, Colton Parks, Carter Smith, Austin Stephens, Jude Brymer and Colin Merchant, (bottom row, from left) Andrew Stoehr, Thomas Simmons and William Hewitt.
