8U's Magical Ride Comes to an End in Cal Ripken SEPA State Quarterfinals

This past weekend, the 8U Roxborough Rebels advanced out of pool B in the Cal Ripken Southeastern PA State Tournament with a 3-1 record. On Monday, they took on 4-0 Warrington, who advanced out of pool A.  It was the competitive game you would've expected throughout, but Warrington pulled away late for a 9-5 win to advance to the semi-finals. The Rebels were eliminated from contention with the loss.  The 8U Rebels had quite the run this summer, amassing a record of 20-5.  They were winners of the 21st Ward Break Out of School Tournament and the Cinnaminson Summer Slam, and they took home the Cal Ripken District 2 title to qualify for the State Tournament. They also finished as the runner up in the Maple Shade Tournament. Great job 8U Rebels! Congratulations on an amazing tournament season - the future is indeed bright!

9U Rebels Win YES! Baseball is Life Tournament

Congratulations to the 9U Rebels. In Berlin, NJ this weekend, they were crowned the 9U Champions of the Baseball is Life Tournament, put on by Youth Elite Sports.  The Rebels dominated from start to finish with amazing pitching, stellar defense, and red hot bats, outscoring their opponents by a combined score of 47-3.  Congratulations 9U Players & Coaches on a great weekend of baseball!

 

  2016 Babe Ruth State Tournament Updates

Congratulations to our 14U and 13U Rebels, both of whom competed in the PA Babe Ruth State Tournament this week. Both teams competed hard, and in just our 2nd year affiliated with Babe Ruth baseball, both showed that the 21st Ward/Roxborough will be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come. 

14U:  In Altoona, the 14U Rebels run reached the State semi-finals, where they dropped a hard fought contest to West End, 8-6.  Representing District 3, the Rebels went undefeated in pool play and secured the #1 seed coming out of the National Pool by defeating Perry County 8-0, Brandywine 13-3, and host Altoona 8-5.  Congrats to the 14U players and coaches on a great performance and on how you carried yourselves and represented Roxborough out in Altoona!

13UIn Belleville, the 13U Rebels, representing District 3, battled perennial power West End for 9 innings in one of the best games you could see, before finally falling 6-5 to be eliminated from pool play.  Over the weekend, the Rebels dropped a close 3-2 decision to Franklin Township and beat Wayne County 8-6, setting up their elimination showdown with West End yesterday. Congrats 13u players and coaches for how well you represented our league in Belleville and for how hard you battled!
