THE Yangebup Knights marched their way to the recent State Tee-ball Championships at Langley Park.

The team went undefeated in the carnival, finishing on top of the ladder to claim the Under-10 C division.

The Knights won six games, scoring 146 runs and conceding just 65, including a 25-1 win.

With his squad made up of two Saturday competition teams, coach Darrell Green was pleased with how the team had come together.

“For a team that was as mixed in experience as ours was it was very special to see the players come together the way they did,” he said.

“They made everybody that was a part of the experience very proud of them and the work they put in.”
