Leader & Times staff report

The Cimarron River Rattlers didn’t get a chance to avenge a loss to Fort Scott Monday in the 9-year-old Cal Ripken State tournament championship.

Instead, both teams were awarded the title of Kansas Co-Champs, and they both headed to the Midwest Regional tournament.

After the Rattlers defeated Emporia in the semi-final, rain delayed the championship game between Cimarron River and Fort Scott. Both teams moved on to Yankton, S.D.

The team had little break to head on to South Dakota since the tournament begins Wednesday.Cimarron River won the Sportsmanship Award with unanimous vote from the umpires and staff.  Brody Sumner was awarded the tournament MVP.  Braxton Hyde, Brody Sumner, Hunter Carson, and Rodney Pando made the All-Tournament Team. The Rattlers will play at either 1 p.m. or 3 pm.
