The E-town Express 14U baseball team won the USSSA Back-to-School Blast Tournament in Wilmington this weekend with an undefeated record.

Two weeks ago the Express finished second in the USSSA Tennessee Bash in Tennessee.

The Express won these tournaments in new uniforms that were provided by the Bladen County Law Enforcement Association. “I have been coaching these boys since they were 9 years old, and the Bladen Law Enforcement Association and the community have been really supportive of our team,” said Head Coach Kendal Kelly.

Members of the E-town Express team are: Raymond Autry, Chase Starkloff, Tyler Hill, Alech Creech, Ayden Piland, Makhi Cromartie, K. J. Brown, Ethan Hilbourn and Colton Simmons. Assistant Coaches are Les Hill and Billy Piland.
