BRATTLEBORO — The Addison County 9-11-Year-Old Little League Baseball All-Star Team on Saturday defeated host Brattleboro, 6-3, to win the age-group title and complete an undefeated 3-0 run through the championship tournament.

The AC 9-11 team will next play in the New England/Mid Atlantic regional, with the squad’s first game scheduled for Aug. 1 against Washington, D.C., in Beverly, Mass.

On the weekend of July 16 and 17, AC defeated Champlain and Lyndon to reach this past Saturday’s state championship game as the four-team tournament’s only undefeated team. Brattleboro needed to defeat AC twice to prevail, but AC took care of business on Saturday.

On Sunday, July 10, AC completed its successful run through the District 1 Tournament by defeating Shelburne, 13-2, in a winner-take-all final.

AC won three games in a row while facing elimination in that tournament, including knocking off Shelburne in the final.

The AC players are Timmy Wright, Luke Wing, Jake Wing, Tucker Sheldrick, Oakley Hunt, Rhys Del Giacco, Brady Duguay, Thatcher Leggett, Grady Coleman, Grayson Conrad and Ezra Bliven. Jesse Wing and Todd Duguay coach the team.
