Congratulations to the Southborough 11-year-old baseball team for winning the District 5 Championship last weekend. Coach Alan Osetek sent around this recap of the team’s season.

The Southboro 11 District Team enjoyed a very successful summer season. The goal of the team this summer was to compete in highly competitive tournaments and win the District 5 11 year old tournament. The boys accomplished every one of their 2011 summer goals. Overall, the team ended the season 20-3 in games played, winning three championships in three different tournaments (Easton, Mansfield, and District 5) and making it to the semi-finals of the Milford 12 year old tournament.

The boys played very consistently all summer with great defense, very effective pitching from a deep staff, and strong and timely hitting. The team hit over .500 for the season and had a combination of clutch hitters, OBP machines and power hitters. This combination of hitting prowess made it very difficult for teams to pitch around the entire line-up. The pitching staff was excellent all season and was backed by an excellent defense that made clutch plays when it counted. The final few games of the season were exciting with a close win over Northboro in the District semi-finals and a see-saw win in a game versus Shrewsbury in the District 5 finals game …a nice way to end the season. Congrats go out to all of the boys on the Southboro Distict 11 Summer team and their coaches

Players include Drew Courtwright, Ryan Courtwright, Timmy Dunderdale, Kyle Henderson, Justin Langway, Jack Martin, Zach Osetek, Alex Pappas, Trevor Schifferdecker, Zach Smith, Jimmy Tobin, and Zach Zides. The team was coached by Osetek along with assistant coaches Steve Courtwright, John Pappas, Chris Schifferdecker and Mark Zides.
