The Cleveland Wildcats 12U All Star baseball team won the District Championship in the local Tarheel League. The team will travel to Boone, NC this week for the State Championship Tournament.
The Wildcats won the NC Tarheel League Johnston County District 5 championship on July 12 and are currently undefeated with a 6-to-0 record. The State Championship games take place July 28-31.
Coach Mike Lewis said, “Each one of these kids have worked hard through their respectful teams during spring 2022 rec ball season at GCAA. Their rec ball coaches have done a great job teaching them the game. These 12U players were selected to represent the Greater Cleveland Athletic Association and have done a great job doing so. From day one on the field with these guys I knew we had something special. Win or lose we all are looking forward to traveling to Boone and competing for the Tarheel League State title. It has been a blessing having the opportunity to work with each one of these kids. If I could recommend anything please take the time to work with youth athletics. Donate your time to your local community and I promise you won’t regret it.”
