The Knox County 9/10 Year-Old All Stars play their first game of the district tournament Wednesday, July 8, against North Laurel. The Knox All Stars defeated North Laurel 7-3.
The Knox All Stars then lost their game Sunday against Hazard Perry, 19-18, in a real back-and-forth barn burner.
The team was then pitted once again against North Laurel on Monday (who knocked Tri City out of the tournament), but the Knox team was worn out by that time and lost 14-3.
Congratulations to the Knox County 9/10 Year-Old All Stars for making it as far as they did. It was a good run, and the coaches and families say they are very proud of the team.
