Traveling Eagles Take Home President's Day Hardware
Congratulations to our Traveling Eagles teams for their outstanding performances at the 2015 President's Day tournament! All of our Eagles teams played their hearts out this weekend, and once again showed off their tremendous skills competing with nearly 30 teams from around the area (and as far away as Memphis!). While we faced stiff competition, we once again proved how formidable the Eagles are with tournament championships won by our 8U and 9U teams and runner-up trophies going to our 11U, 12U and 14U teams! Congratulations to all our Eagles players and coaches!!
Congratulations to our former Traveling Eagles, Chance Riley, Trevin Eubanks and Drew Frederic! All three players signed letters of intent to play college baseball after they finish their high school careers. Chance signed with East Mississippi, Trevin signed with St. John's River and Drew signed with Troy. We wish them all the best and many successes!
