#4 Southworth Black (7-3) vs #5 PE 2020 Blue (3-5-4)

Southworth Black 18U

This year's Facility Champion out of Southworth Hitting in La Vista, Nebraska is Southworth Black. As defending champions of both the 18U and 16U divisions, any championship will need to go through Omaha.

Trey Frahm and Noah Griese lead the team in HR and average, while Matt Pleiss and Brayden Boch have both shown great seasons as well, both hitting over .400.

 PE 2020 Blue

#7 DSA Red (9-5) vs #10 Southworth ()


DSA Red lost the tiebreaker with DSA Silver for facility championship at Diamond Sports Academy and looks to be one of the darkhorse candidates to make a push for a National Championship.
