Spring Branch-Memorial Sports Association 8U baseball team
The Spring Branch-Memorial Sports Association 8U baseball team, with many players from Rummel Creek Elementary, came out strong at the end of their season after working hard in their first year together. The team, the Asheville Tourists, also known as the Moonshots (paying homage to the professional team the Tourists, who used to be called the Moonshiners) had an impressive four-game winning streak at one point in the season. The boys were coached by Casey Gregerson, Seth Michaelson, and Chris Madden. Pictured (from left) are players Sebastian Moreno, Shaan Gupta, Van Michaelson, Oliver Kurkowski, Henry Bauer, Aidan Madden, Fynn Gregerson, Charlie Schneider, Calvin Ludtke, Carlos Moranos.
