Leader & Times staff report

After winning a head-to-head duel against Grant County for a trip to state last weekend, the Cimarron River Rattler 9-year-old team advanced to state and opened the tournament in Fort Scott with a win.

The Rattlers defeated Paola 17-3.

Brody Sumner earned MVP honors and Braxton Hyde was given the WOW Award.

The tournament is pool-play rather than a traditional bracket.

Saturday, the Rattlers faced Fort Scott late in the afternoon.

AT 3:15 p.m. Sunday, the Rattlers will conclude pool play against Haysville.

The other pool consists of Neosho River, Cottonwood Valley, Winfield and Emporia.

The top two teams from each pool will advance to Monday’s championship round with the No. 1 seeds from each side playing the No. 2 seed from the opposite bracket.

The two winners will meet at 5:30 p.m. for the state championship.
