OLALLA — On the big field at South Kitsap Southern Little League June 11, the Grey Monsters came away with a minor prep championship in a 7-4 victory over the Panthers.
The Panthers had given the Grey Monsters their only loss of the entire season and took an early 3-0 lead in the championship game, but the Grey Monsters rallied.

That was enough offense for the Grey Monsters’ pitching combination of starter Joseph “JoJo” Robinson and reliever William Orser to bring home the trophy.
The Grey Monsters’ roster included Cooper DeFevers, Kali Dover, Thaiden Ebenal, Jacob Fraley, Aava Lanskey, Amelia Lanskey, Jaxson Loudermilk, William Orser, Uriah Pablo, Brandon Ransier, Talon Rhodes, Joseph Robinson and Alex Williams.
