    Stix Finish 5th out of 216 in Ft. Meyers at Perfect Game WWBA Underclass

    The Stix 2016 class had a great showing in Fort Meyers last weekend.  After going 3-0 and only giving up 1 run the team was the #2 overall seed out of 216 teams going into Championship play.  After two more wins they found themselves in the quarterfinals and only 8 teams remaining.  The Stix with only 12 players on the roster ran out of gas in the Quarterfinals against a good pitcher already committed to Florida State.  They ended up losing 3-0 to the Virginia Cardinals who ended up winning the tournament.  After a great showing the team was awarded numerous players named to the All-Tournament team.  Congrats to the following players for making All-Tournament: Bradley Gneiting, Christian Julius, Nick Skeffington, Alex Stiegler, & Matt Canterino
