Overton County 15 year-olds play in All-Star Tournament

The Overton County 15 year-old All-Star team competed in the district tournament held in Cookeville on July 5-8, and was eliminated with two losses in the tourney.

Overton County’s first opponent was Sparta on Friday, July 6.

Sparta capitalized on a couple of early Overton County miscues to take a 2-0 lead after two innings. Overton County starting pitcher Shawn Walthall held the opposition in check until the 4th inning when Sparta plated a couple more runs as a result of a walk and 2 hits.

The lone Overton County run was plated on a run-scoring single by Tracy McDonald. Overton County picked up only 3 hits in the game off Sparta pitcher Justin Brown.

Sparta added a run in the 7th inning, making the final score 5-1.
Walthall was the losing pitcher, allowing 3 earned runs in 4 2/3 innings while striking out 6.

On Saturday, July 7, Overton County played Jamestown in a loser’s bracket game.

Jamestown tallied a run in the top of the first, but Overton County tied it up in the bottom of the inning on an RBI single by Caleb Sells.

The game settled into a pitcher’s duel between Jamestown’s Chris Stockton and Overton County’s Hayden Hill.

Jamestown plated single runs in the 4th and 5th innings, while Overton scored their second and last run in the 5th.

Jamestown added an insurance run in the 7th, making the final score 4-2.
Stockton went the distance for Jamestown, limiting Overton County to 2 hits and striking out 11.

Hill pitched 5 innings for Overton County, allowing 5 hits, an earned run, and striking out 8.

The only other Overton County hit was picked up by Jacob Collins.
Overton County Coach Stan Walthall said, “Our pitching and defense was OK. We just couldn’t get anything going offensively.”

The Overton County team consisted of Tracy McDonald, Hayden Hill, Jacob Collins, Shawn Walthall, Caleb Sells, Tyler West, Joe Adams, Brian Korth, Brad Jackson, and James Hunley. Others were voted to the team, but due to vacations and other commitments were not able to participate.
