Lynchburg - Today's ABC 13 Team of the Week is the Lynchburg Jefferson 11-and-12-year-old All-Stars. Lynchburg Jefferson Tuesday night outlasted Lynchburg Colonial in an extra-inning title game 19-10 to win the District Two championship.
Tuesday night's victory earns the Jefferson All-Stars a spot in the Little League State Tournament which begins a week from Friday, July 19th. And this year's state tournament is being hosted by Lynchburg.
Reese Evans, HIT 3-RUN HR TUESDAY NIGHT, said "Going to states, it's just awesome, it's undescribable. You just can't put it into words, that game was just awesome last night. It's just awesome to be a part of this team effort. No "I" in team, team effort."
John Kistler, LYNCHBURG JEFFERSON FIRST BASEMAN, said "We have good hitters. We make mistakes but we like to pick each other up. So we're a good team."
Reese Evans said "I was so starving during that game. It was a marathon game. Three hour game, I've never played in any game like that. So exciting."
