The 10-U Spikes finished undefeated in the rain-delayed Spring Shootout tourney on the weekend of April 14-15th in Owensboro, Ky.. The tournament format was altered to a single elimination tournament after a rained out Saturday. The 10U team drew a bye in the first round, then faced the River City Rockers in the second round defeating them to earn a shot at the championship. The team then faced the Ky. Miken Elite for the first place hardware. Jumping out to a 6-0 lead, the Miken team was playing well. The Spikes made a late top of the 6th inning come back to take the lead. Then, with good pitching and a great over the shoulder diving catch by Damon Wilmes in the last inning, the team held on to win the game and BPA Spring Shootout tournament. This 1st place finish qualified the 10U team for the 2007 10U World Series and a chance to defend their last years B.P.A. World Series 2006 title.
