Dragons off to a hot start

The Issaquah Dragons, which won the 10-year-old state Pony League baseball title last year, got off to hot start again this year.

The 11U Dragons most recently entered the West Coast Junior Olympic and NIT Tournament for 12-year-olds — a qualifying tournament for the 12-year-old Junior Olympics in July. The Dragons dropped their first game to the reigning state champion Spokane Vipers, but went on to win their next three and earned their way back in to the championship game against the same Viper team. This time the Dragons got on the board early, scoring three runs in the first inning and won the game 7-2 and earned a bid to the 12-year-old Junior Olympics in July. The Dragons have now won 14 of the last 16 tournaments they’ve entered. And, 18 of the last 20 dating back to when they were 9-year-olds.

The Dragons began their 2008 campaign with a decisive 10-run mercy win over the Wacker Baseball Academy in the Super Series 11U Tournament in Phoenix, Ariz., in March. They followed that up with winning the Baseball Players Association 11U Spring Opener Tournament in Kent. The Dragons won all four of their games in this tournament by virtue of the “mercy rule.”
