HAYS Seven innings were not enough to decide the semi-final of the Senior American Legion Kansas State Tournament between the AA Iola Indians and Emporia Post 5.
The Indians could not muster the go-ahead run with four chances at the plate in a tight 2-2 game. Ultimately, Emporia walked off in the 11th inning to eliminate Iola from the tournament.
Iola rolled through AA pool play, outscoring its opponents in the combined three games 29-4. Pool play success earned Iola the one seed, and another AA state title, which the Indians won last year, whetting their appetite for more. This year, AA and AAA were combined, creating one champion to advance to regionals in Nebraska.
