For the second time in less than a week, an Upper Peninsula sports team has won a State Championship.
The Delta County 13-14 year old boys team defeated a team from Richmond 3-1 in this afternoon’s title game at Montague High School.
Logan Lamb and Nick Aird each had RBI singles in the top of the 5th inning for Delta County. Hunter Garling pitched 5 1/3 innings to get the win on the mound.
Aird relieved Garling with 1 out in the 6th; he got the final 5 outs to get the save.
With their State Championship in hand, Delta County is off to the Central Regional Tournament in Fort Wayne, Ind. Their first game will be Saturday night at 7:30 pm EST.
Back on July 25, the Escanaba Junior All-Stars softball team won a state title at Pinery Park in Wyoming, MI. They are also off to a regional tournament in Akron, OH that begins on Saturday.
