Two weekends ago, the SEK Cadets claimed the 13U 2019 State Championship after picking up a perfect 6-0 record in the process.
In order to claim the state title, the Cadets toppled the Emporia Jr. Spartans 13U. The Spartans are ranked first in the state and fourth in the nation.
The Cadets started pool play with a 19-9 victory against Overland Park, and let that momentum carry them forward. They followed with a 6-2 win over the Martinez sluggers. Payton Houk and Colton Mayhew led the way with two hits each to propel the Cadet bats.
