Local player on national-championship team
Nick Harpel, playing for the Redmond-based Dow 16
baseball club, recently returned from the USSSA 16-year-old World
Series hardball tournament in Oklahoma City. Harpel's team went
undefeated in eight games to take the championship in a field of 32 teams.
Harpel played at three different positions going 3-for-6 with four
RBIs with several sacrifice hits that contributed to the teams win. He also
pitched three scoreless innings as a starter, but admits he had a little trouble with
the oversized height of the mound.
The team had a great week and visited several sites, including
the Oklahoma Federal Building memorial. Team members topped the
week off by receiving their championship medals. Harpel is Junior a at
Mount Si High School and a member of the varsity baseball squad.
