Grey Monsters capture South Kitsap Southern Little League minor prep championship

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.

The Grey Monsters trailed 3-0 on that hot evening in Ollala as they came to bat in the fourth inning when they put together a six-hit, five-run frame that pushed them out to a 5-3 lead. The Monsters added two more in the sixth and collected 16 hits overall.

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. The team’s coaches were Josh Ebenal, Brian Loudermilk and Steven Ransier.
