Leland downs Wolfpack Optimist, wins championship

Posted on: 07.14.2018 at 07:48 a.m.

The 9-1 deficit the Wolfpack Optimist faced when play resumed in the DYB AAA tournament Thursday was too much to overcome as Leland defeated Wolfpack Optimist 9-3. The game began Thursday, but was suspended due to rain in the second inning.

Leland went on to the championship with a 2-0 win over West Robeson American. West Robeson American defeated South Park White 9-3 to reach the finals. Leland  finished tournament play undefeated. Wolfpack Optimist finished state tournament play with a record of 4-2. Both of Wolfpack Optimist’s losses came to the Leland squad.

Leland will not have to travel far, as Lumberton is the host for this year’s DYB World Series.
