Ashe All-Stars finish second in Boone

BOONE – The Ashe County All-Stars 8U coach pitch team traveled to neighboring Watauga County to compete in the Will Dicus Memorial Tournament.

The All-Stars scored easy wins in its first two games. Ashe beat Boone Equip 7U by a 13-2 score and beat Boone Equip Camo by a 15-5 margin.

In the championship game, a high-scoring affair went in favor of the Boone Equip Red team by a 23-14 score.

Coming up soon, the All-Stars are holding a BBQ fundraiser to help support the team. The fundraiser will be on July 9 beginning at 11 a.m. until the food is gone. All BBQ plates will include slaw, baked beans, dessert and a roll for $8. The fundraiser will take place at Midway Baptist Church in West Jefferson.

All proceeds from the BBQ sales will go to the Ashe All-Star 8U team that will be competing in the Tarheel League District Tournament and hoping to qualify for the state championship tourney.

Those interested can also pre-order their plates and orders of five or more will be delivered.
