This weekend, the Granite Legion competed in the Montevideo baseball Tournament. The Legion’s first game was against Dakota Valley, who defeated Granite 9-1. Their second game was against Dilworth/ Glyndon/Felto, who defeated them 6-2.

Coach Richter reported, “I am not going to sugarcoat it, we played 2 teams that I felt we were better than, and did not play well. Some guys came to play, but there were a few that didn’t, and that is disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, we did some good things, and there were some positive things to take away from each game. Asa had a great day at the plate going 4 – 6, with a double and a RBI. Our next game is on Tuesday, July 10th, so hopefully we can get back on track after our 4th of July week break.”
