AUSTINTOWN OH- STATE CHAMPIONS!! The Austintown 10U softball team has reached the summit of the state softball world. With their sixth victory over Poland of the summer, this time around by a score of 14-2, Austintown claimed the state crown.

Head coach Matt Hamley could not be in attendance during the team’s run through the bracket.  He put a plan in place to make sure his team would be ready to succeed without him physically there. He was still a big part of the game plans.  He couldn’t be prouder of his team, and now he knows it’s time to look to the future. Next season seven of the players on the roster will make the step up to 12U.  He took the time to come on YSN’s Running Point to talk about the state championship, highlight some of the key members of his roster, and much more.

BOARDMAN OH- Austintown and Poland met at the very beginning of the 10U softball district tournament. It was a battle, but Austintown won 2-0. The two teams battled the rest of the way through the bracket to square up a rematch in the championship. Austintown was one win away from a title, and they got it. A 5 run sixth let them cruise to a 7-2 win.

For most of the game it was a straight pitcher’s duel between Austintown’s Mila Hamley and Poland’s Aly Blinsky.  Both pitcher’s finished with double digit strikeouts as Blinsky racked up 16 and Hamley knocked down 14.

Up until the 5th inning, Austintown carried a 2-0 lead. They scored their runs on a couple of walks, a wild pitch, and an error.  Then in the bottom of the 5th, Poland finally cracked the score board.  As Capri Carchedi and Rosie Simko drew back to back walks and then Sydney Macdonald got an RBI base hit to cut the Austintown lead to 2-1. Hamley shut the door though to mantain the lead.

Austibtown came up and finally got the offense going in the 6th and final inning. They took advantage of a few more walks, and passed balls to put the pressure on. Annabel Mikesell got the team’s first hit to solidify a 5 run inning. That was plenty of room for Hamley to pitch her way to a 7-2 victory in the bottom of the frame.
