The Moncks Corner Dixie Youth AAA all-stars (10U) breezed through their sub-district in Ladson with three resounding victories to advance to the District VII tournament.
Moncks Corner will tangle with Mount Pleasant in a best-of-3 series at Hanahan June 25-26. One game is scheduled for Tuesday and a potential of two games slated for Wednesday.
“We’re really excited,” Moncks Corner coach Carey Salisbury said. “It was a total team effort. We got hitting one through 12 and great starting pitching.”
Salisbury’s squad defeated Northwood (13-2) and Parks Field (9-2 and 18-3) in the four-team sub-district, which wrapped up June 20.
Mount Pleasant won a five-team sub-district at Hanahan, coasting past Wescott in the final on Friday. Salisbury saw Mount Pleasant play twice.
“They’re solid,” Salisbury said. “You can tell they’re very well-coached. They don’t make very many mistakes. It will take a good effort to beat them.”
The district winner advances to the state tournament July 12-18 in Anderson.
Moncks Corner team members are Easton Little, Will Rusch, Henry Montgomery, Seth Williams, Hunter Christensen, Henry Rivers, Eli Matthews, Chipper Matthews, James Blackwell, Hayden Jones, Braylend Booker and Jase Bunch.
