Boone County won the 9th Region Championship today beating Dixie, 3-1. Starter Doug Teegarden went the distance for the Rebels, earning the win. "I had my slider working for me today", Teegarden said. "It means a lot to us. It was a team effort, it's not just me." Head coach Wayne Huff had total confidence in Teegarden, "Doug's a big game pitcher...and we were going to ride him as long as we could."
Justin Carzoli singled in Jacob McGaha in the 6th inning with what proved to be the winning run.
Up next for the Rebels is the state tournament. Their first game is a week from Monday against Louisville Butler. "We're excited to go down there", Huff said. "I looked at their stats last night and seen that they've won a lot of games. I guess I'm going to have to make some phone calls about them."
