Potomac Warriors 13U win AA State Tournament

Most recently, the Potomac Warriors 13U baseball team defeated the 13U Culpeper Cardinals 13-12 to win the AA State Baseball Tournament at the Virginia Sports Complex. Over the course of the tournament the Warriors won all five games, resulting in 57 runs scored, while giving up 23 runs. After splitting victories against the Mid County Cougars (8-7, win) and the Virginia Patriots (9-6, loss) during this weekend’s tournament at the Bowling Green Baseball Stadium in Bowling Green, the Warriors are boasting a record of 18-10-1.
During the championship game the Cardinals jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Undaunted by the Cardinal attack, the Warriors defense settled down in the second inning; nullifying the Cardinal offense to zero runs. In the bottom of the third inning the Warriors delivered 12 runs to take the lead and the momentum away from the Cardinals. However, in the top of the fifth inning, the Cardinals bounced by with two more runs.
Holding on to a precarious 12-11 lead, the Warriors scored their final run in the bottom of the fifth inning for a 13-11 lead. Not to be outdone, the Cardinals roared back with a run in the top of the sixth inning.


With LJay Newsome as the Warriors closer, one out, and the tying Cardinal run on third base, fans from both sides of the ballpark were literally on the edge of their seats. As fate would have it, Newsome struck out the last two Cardinal batters, giving the Warriors their first ever tournament championship.
The Warriors used three pitchers in the form or Hunter Tolliver, Nick Graves and Newsome for the victory.
During Saturday’s games, the warriors defeated Richmond Legends (7-3) and the Hanover Hurricanes (9-2) for seeding purposes during the championship series on the following day. On the following day, the Warriors offense went into overdrive by dominating both the Richmond Legends (13-3) and the Forest Lightning (13-3), before their championship victory over the Cardinals.
For their efforts, the Warriors received a trophy and a commemorative championship ring.
At the plate the Warriors averaged 2-3 on offense. Elated with his team’s success, Potomac Warrior head coach Tom said: “We always preach never give up, while you’re down. This game demonstrated how we could come back and beat our opponents.”
The Warriors will be back in action on Saturday, June 12, and Sunday, June 13, at Patriot Park, in Spotsylvania, Va. In addition, the Warriors are scheduled to play in five tournaments during the summer months. The Warriors will take a break in August and resume play in September.
