Junior High standouts Kendall McCarty and Tori Ross were two of the Ada subs and faired nicely against the stiff field, batting all the way to the consolation championship match before dropping a 7-5, 6-4 decision to a team from Tahlequah.

COACHES QUOTE: “It was the best weather we had all year. There was lots of good play. We (both Ada teams) are about where I thought we would be at this point in the season. We just need to keep improving,” — Ada head coach Skip Griese.
