WAVERLY -- In a tough Waverly/Ashland Juniors Tournament, the Wahoo Medicine Man Pharmacy Juniors evaded getting swept with a big 14-3 win over Gretna Post 216 on June 29. In the victory, the Blues overcame three errors by racking up 14 hits.

Wahoo started the game off strong with a pair of singles to center and third base from Cody Hesser and Kaden Christen. Another single, this time by Jase Kaminski and then a groundout and line out by Alex Barry and Quin Schutt put the Blues in front 3-0.

The Dragons battled back to tie the game at three apiece with one run in the second, third and fourth innings.

In the top of the fifth, Kaminski legged out an infield single from the leadoff position. He came around to score on a single to left field that put Wahoo up 4-3. A wild pitch from Gretna and a groundout by Jake Bohac increased the Blues edge to three.
