Young Raptors crowned State champions
The Rockingham Raptors District TeeBall Association under-nines returned from the Tee-Ball Association of WA’s 2018 State Championships victorious earlier this month, beating Wanneroo-Joondalup 17-7 in the grand final.
The Raptors sent five teams — from under-nines to under-13s — to the event, which was held at Langley Park over the Labour Day long weekend.
More than 80 teams from across WA competed, with 15 in the under-nines competition.
Rockingham Raptors president Harmony Crouch said she believed it had been more than two decades since the association had had a win at the State Championships.
“We believe it has been 22 years as online records have only been kept since 2004,” she said. “We’re so incredibly proud. These 12 players aged only six, seven, and eight showed so much maturity and composure throughout.”
