District 3 Tournament and will be heading to the NC State Tournament. After a 1-run victory over Dilworth in the opening round of the tournament, Myers Park had a bye on day 2, followed by a convincing 12-2 win over Lake Norman to clinch the district championship.
The final game featured some quality pitching by Pres Cavenaugh (3 innings, no runs) and Henry Merchant (2 innings, 2 runs) and a 9-run 1st inning for MP on several hits, walks and errors. The game ended in style with a 3-run walk-off HR by Hayden Malchesky in the 5th inning to seal the 10-run victory.
