Maumee Little League Senior Division Team Wins Ohio State Tournament, Heads To Regionals

Maumee Little League’s Senior Division boys tournament baseball team won the Ohio state championship last week in Ironton, Ohio. The team of 15- and 16-year-olds lost its opening game to Chesapeake 6-0, but bounced back to win the second contest of the day by defeating and eliminating Hamilton-Fairfield, 17-5. Maumee’s second day started off avenging the loss to Chesapeake with a 10-0 victory, during which Caleb Loboschefski, Brayden Meeks and Conner Kish combined for a no-hitter. That win set up a game against undefeated Fairborn. Maumee won that contest 7-4 with the help of a clutch, pinch-hit RBI double from Dylan Riley. Now facing the same Fairborn team in the championship match, Maumee played to an 11-1 victory. Loboschefski dominated from the mound and Maumee’s offense posted 13 hits over five innings. Jim Durliat’s Maumee team now heads to the Central Region tournament in Peru, Ill.. The winner will travel to South Carolina for the Senior League World Series. Maumee’s team included (from left) back row, Gavin Richard, Angelo Shepler, Kish, Drew Durliat, Dylan Hamilton, Dylan Riley, Josh Duling, Jacob Buck, Meeks, Jayden Michalak, Caleb Boerst and Loboschefski; and front row, Raymond Conners and Eli Seiler.
