The Iola Indians’ bats are hot for Wednesday’s opening game of the Kansas State Tournament in Topeka.
The Iola Indians AA American Legion baseball team cruised their way to a Zone AA Tournament title July 15-17 after outscoring their opponents in three games, 28-2. Much of the offensive firepower had been coming in the later innings and it took until the sixth inning for the Indians to pull away for the eight-run victory in the final game.
“I feel good. I think we can all say that as a team,” said the Indians’ Trey Sommer, adding that the two-week break will be a benefit. “Just resting and taking it easy will be good. Hopefully we can show up to Topeka, win our three, four games and maybe make a run at the AA or AAA state title and maybe earn a trip to nationals in Alabama.”
