Saturday, June 10th featured an 8u Tournament that was both rewarding and exciting for the teams that entered. The hometown team, The Clarion Riverhounds were the tournament champions. They were able to win thanks to a team offensive effort, batting a combined .563 batting average for the entire day.

The Championship game against McLane Thunder was the highlight of the day. The Riverhounds were down early, 14-2 but battled back to a last inning 17-16 finish.
