Elks win AAA title

The Jamestown Elks proved they could dig themselves out of a hole this weekend.
After losing their opener on Friday, the Elks reeled off four straight wins, including two on Sunday, to claim their first Class AAA state amateur tournament championship since 2005.
The Elks swept the three-time defending AAA champion Jamestown Miller Lite Merchants on a windy, but otherwise pleasant day at Jack Brown Stadium, overcoming an early 3-0 deficit en route to a 10-6 win in the clincher. They won the first game 6-0 behind a dynamic performance on the mound and at the plate from Erik Scott.
“This was a lot of fun to be out here playing with these guys,” Scott said. “I really didn’t know the pitchers or the other teams and the guys were great about helping me out and telling me what to expect.
“Any time you come out and have success as a team and do well, it’s a lot of fun.”
