Ohio Elite headed to Cooperstown, NY for Week 7 of the All Star Village World Series. OEB quickly established a name for themselves by dominating the other 52 teams during skills competition which is held day 1 of the week long event. Konnor Daughriety smashed the competition during Home Run Derby as he hit 17 bombs compared to the next closest competitor at 9. Team Relay drill was won by Ohio Elite in addition, while also finishing 2nd in Double Play Combination and having their own Riley Neer finishing 5th out of 52 for the Fastest Man Competition.
As the games began, Ohio Elite became the talk of campus as a team to beat with their outstanding performances in pool play. OEB rolled to a 6-0 mark by outscoring teams from FL, IL, CA, NJ, and NY by a combined score of 85-13. The team from Ohio smashed 33 Home Runs during the week and were led by:
Bourk - 7
Holmstrom - 6
Daughriety - 6
Gallant - 4
Larison - 3
A host of others at 1
Ohio Elite's performance earned them the #3 seed in the 52 team tournament and a wave of confidence leading into bracket play. After dispatching of 2 teams from California in bracket play (13-9 and 6-4), OEB faced off with the L4 Rattlers from Oakland, CA in semifinal action. Action was fierce from the 1st pitch as the Ohio boys jumped off to a 5-0 start in the 1st, which was then quickly eliminated by L4 starting with 8 runs of their own in the bottom half. This would be indicative of the entire game as 33 total runs were scored overall and resulting in OEB falling just short of their quest for a spot in the championship game.
Despite the disappointment in seminfinal play, OEB held their heads high by experiencing meaningful and life long memories, great success on the field, and an overall week that will always be remembered. The continued improvement and development of the young men on this team was special to watch and will fuel their progress in the rest of 2018 and into the 2019 season.
2018 Titans Early Bird Champions
Ohio Elite Larison went undefeated (5-0) in winning the 2018 Titans Early Bird Championship. The bats were alive in pool play as OEB won both games in run rule fashion (17-7) and (11-1). During Sunday's bracket play, Elite staved off a strong effort from the Columbus Sharks before rolling in the Semifinals over Jackson County Black Sox (23-3) and in the championship game against Gahanna Elite (7-2). Highlights from Sunday included strong pitching from Hunter Peterson, Keegan Holmstrom, and Billy Bourk. Offensive fireworks were also plentiful as Riley Neer, Keegan Holmstrom, and Konnor Daughriety all smashed over the fence home runs. OEB continues tournament play next weekend in a loaded field of contenders in Cincinnati, OH.
2018 King of Swing Champions
Ohio Elite Larison went undefeated in taking the Gold Division Championship at the 2018 King of Swing in Columbus, Ohio. Sunday action included holding off a scrappy Gahanna Elite team 6-5, a dominating pitching performance in beating Ohio Elite Slack 4-0 in semifinal action (Keegan Holmstrom pitched a complete game allowing 1 hit and striking out 13), while a trio of pitchers led by Billy Bourk combined to hold an outstanding West Virgina Gamers team to 1 run in the championship match in OEB's defeat of the Gamers 2-1. Contributions from each member of this team led to Ohio Elite Larison kicking off this 2018 season in championship fashion!
