June 23, 2010 9 Knights win Kelso Invite BY TRAVIS SHERER sports@rnarysvilleglobe, com KELSO -- The Marysville Knights got large contribu- tions from each of their nine players in winning the Kelso Invitational baseball tourna- ment June 13. The Knights, made up of nine Marysville and Stilly Valley Little League 12-year- olds, went 7-0 in the tourna- ment to earn the title. "It was quite a weekend" said Knights manager Jamie Elvrom. "We really hit the ball and you've got to hand to these kids. We were miss- ing a couple of players and they each had to play every inning of all of those games in two days:' A 4-1 win over West Lewis Country earned the title in a game where Tanner Bradford struck out 11 to earn the win. The first three games in the tournament were pool play to determine seeding for bracket play the second day. The Knights' first win, an 11-1 rout of Sandy Black, was fueled by Bradford's two home runs.

Bulldogs (14-3) in the sec- ond game and Sandy Red (12-2) in the third game. "Everybodyjust chipped in against Sandy Red;' Elvrom said. "But we got a lot of help from Riley Oakes, who scored three runs against the Bulldogs, and Ryan Elvrom was 3-for-3 with three runs scored against Sandy Red" Earning the No. 2 seed out of pool play, the Knights drew Sandy Black again, winning 8-3 behind a strong outing on the mound from Nate Heckendorf and Oakes was 3-for-3 with three runs scored. The Knights then defeat- ed Sandy Red in the second round, 7-1, with Bradford pitching a complete game and going 3-for-3 with a pair of home runs. In the semifinal game, the Knights were fueled by the first career home run by Ryan Elvrom. Kelso walked cleanup hitter Taylor Koellmer, who hit a home run earlier in the game, to get to Elvrom. "That play sort of blew it open for us;' Jamie Elvrom said. "Up until -hen, the game was pretty cbse. They walked Goliath lo get to' David and he blew it open:' Koellmer was 3-for-3 in the game with a walk. After seven gmes, the Knights came away scor- ing 71 runs and hitting 11 round-trippers. "It was a great tournament for us and we're really excit- ed for what these kids are capable of going forward" Elvrom said.

ChiMers at Riverside Bowling in Mount Vernon CHILDERS earned J.J. a top score of 160 so far after bowling for just a couple of years, although he disputes that he scored a 200 on a nine-pin game in which he calculated what his score would have been with one more pin per frame. Bowling is becoming a family sport, as the Childers' and Chandler and his mom, Michele joined us. Over the course of two games, both lJ. and Noah became my official coaches, completely reconfiguring my approach and delivery to look more like I know what I'm doing -- despite the result. So, to shed light on the elephant in the room, who won? Nobod) because when you're 11 years old, every- body wins -- some just hap- pen to win state titles.
