Del Mar Powerhouse 12U Runner-Up in AAU President’s Day Super NIT Baseball Tournament

The 12U boys had an outstanding President’s Day weekend, with their second place finish in the AAU President’s Day Super NIT in Fountain Valley. Coach Larry Jackel commented, “The sticks were alive and well all weekend long as the boys put up 55 runs over seven games with a 5-2 record. During pool play, every one of the Good Guys got into the action with fantastic defense, great pitching, and of course, incredible sticks.” The team earned the #3 seed after pool play, battled their way to victory in the quarter-final and semi-final games, to eventually face one of the best 12U teams in the country in the championship game.
