As their major teams were preparing for the County Tournament, the Southwest little leaguers finished the season on a high note as they played their last game Thursday evening.

Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter Nine team took on Universal Carpet Care in an epic battle that had DAV winning by a touchdown 12-6.

Brushor Leveling of DAV had a base hit to right field that brought in a run and loaded up the bases. Ben VanSumeren followed up with a double and drove in two more runs in the inning.

UCC players Zac Gider had two hits including a triple! Justin Cheney had two hits, Kevin Foco had one double, Jimmy Grigg and Parker Rivard also managed base hits but nothing could surpass DAV's "Battle Power"!

DAV coach Dan Hanczewski had the team plaster battle paint under their eyes for the last "battle of the year" and it worked!

Southwest little League would like to thank all the parents and volunteers who made 2008 a roaring success with a higher number of players and helpers out at the field.

They look forward to the Major Baseball 2008 Tournament which starts June 30th! The All Star State Tounrament begins on July 17 & 18th and will be held at SouthWest Little League and Northeast Little League which will bring 16 teams from 16 districts to Bay City for the tournament!

As they say there's a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow but as our cameras show that gold is Southwest Little League.

SWLL player, Brushor Leveling anxiously awaits the start of his last game of the season!
