Single-A American Legion: Post 15 Iola Indians
GARNETT The American Legion season ended Wednesday night for the Single-A Post 15 Iola Indians in the zone championship in Garnett.
After a knock-down, drag-out 10-9 semifinal win over the Topeka Senators to start the evening, the Indians fell 14-1 to zone champions Linn County.
At the beginning of this season, this group of guys had never played together, said Coach Brian Dillow. There was a small group who had played some before but thats it. So for a group of 10-11 guys to get together and to mesh over the season is kind of special. Theyve collectively gotten better over the summer. Thats the whole goal when you play Legion ball. When you get to the zone tournament you want to be playing your best and thats what this team did. Im very proud of them.
