13U Swarm USTSA Best of the West Ultimate Division Finalist

The 13U San Diego Swarm finished their 5 game weekend in Huntington Beach with a second place finish. Included in their run Sunday were wins over Team Victory 6-1 (Connor Kleis WP) and the Oakley Stingrays 4-1 (Jordan Pearce WP).

Jordan pitched a masterful game, striking out 14 and becoming one of the very few pitchers anywhere to defeat the Rays.

The Swarm will return to action the first week of May. Congrats to all members of the team this weekend...Jordan, Connor, Josh Fitzgerald, Rob Simsiman, Dylan Robertson, Lane O'Dea, Dillon Wirkus, Nico Holm, Andrew Boyd, Jake Wiegand and Ryan McClure. Great job boys!

The 13U Swarm took the field with purpose this weekend capturing the USTSA "Ring In The Season" Championship, qualifying for the USTSA World Series. The Swarm dedicated the championship to Valerie Davis, daughter of San Diego Blues umpire Tom Davis, recovering in the hospital from an automobile accident. The Swarm presented to Valerie the signed championship trophy and game ball. The entire Swarm family wishes Valerie a speedy recovery.

After going 2-0 to capture the top seed, the Swarm defeated the OC Heat 12-5 and then shut out the Victory Athletics 8-0 to win the championship. Jordan Pearce led the way with an amazing tournament. At the plate, Jordan went 9-10 with 2 BB's in 12 plate appearances, flying deep to the fence in right the only time he was retired. He scored 8 runs, drove in 9 and had 7 stolen bases including stealing 2nd, 3rd and home in one sequence in the championship game. On the mound, he pitched 7 innings (a save in game 1 and a complete game win in the finals), giving up no runs, 2 hits, no walks and registering 14 K's. He added 3 highlight reel plays at short to complete his weekend. Great tournament Jordan!

Dylan Robertson, Dillon Wirkus and Connor Kleis earned the other three wins, with relief work from Jordan, Josh Fitzgerald, Rob Simsiman and Lane O'Dea. Tristan Sizik had an all around tournament, laying down bunts, stealing bases and playing 3rd, 1st, LF and RF flawlessly.

Offensively, the 2-7 hitters (Chase, Jordan, Josh, Connor, Jaylon, Dillon)were absolutely dominate. In addition to Jordan, Josh had 8 hits, Dillon and Jaylon King 7 hits, Chase 6 hits. As a group, they went 40-57 (a .701 average!) with 30 runs scored, 30 RBI and drawing 9 walks. WOW!
