The Neligh Pee Wee baseball team earned fourth place in the Quad County League Tournament at Neligh.
A 4-0 victory over Pierce White gave the Neligh team a first-round win. Coach Ron Beacom said the Neligh boys played a solid defensive game in the second round against Creighton, but had a hitting slump and fell 2-0.
"We got our bats going in the next game with Albion #1 and won 12-0 in just three innings," Beacom said.
In the battle for third and fourth place last night, Battle Creek #1 defeated Neligh, 6-2. The tournament will conclude with the championship game tomorrow night.
