Riegelwood finally tasted defeat. South Park defeated the team from eastern Columbus County 8-3 to force a winner-take-all final game for the NC DYB AA state title. Apparently the youngsters from Riegelwood didn’t like the taste of losing, coming back in game two, pounding South Park 13-2 to claim the state championship.
Riegelwood will now move on to the AA World Series. The DYB AA World Series will be held in Cleveland, Mississippi from July 28 through August 1.
