9U Regional Championship to be decided this weekend

August 5, 2011

The 9-year-old Cal Ripken Regional, that was originally played in Hattiesburg, Miss., was rained out July 27. Since the four remaining teams were from Arkansas, the finals were moved to Benton’s Bernard Holland Park. The Benton 9s, coached by Shane Pigue, were the number one seed going into bracket play after 4-0 in pool play and was chosen to host the final two games.
“We set a goal to do that, because not many teams have won regionals for Benton,” Pigue said. “Tim Bennett’s team has won three-in-a-row but no other Benton team has won a regional before.
“It is kind of crazy.”
