For the second year in a row, co-ed Little League softball team, The River Valley Savages, has dominated their annual Softball Tournament held at Ben Geren Park in Fort Smith. Made up of 12 players with 9 returning from last year, the Savages hold players from Mansfield, Greenwood, and Fort Smith. The entire team knows how to work together and in return, it is manifested through the scoreboard.
Making up the River Valley Savages are Isaac Carson, Colton Moore, Carter Koch, Layton Pyles, Drake Brunson, Hunter Whittaker, Jalee Edwards, Ellah Heydenreich, Bailey Quick, Kaegen Hickey, Kaylynn Piyapho, and Loghan Settle. The Savages, who are coached by Brandi Elmore, Blaine Quick, and Jeremy Whittaker, won their tournament on August 3 by defeating the Leflore County Ballers and Beauty and the Beast. The River Valley Savages are exactly that, Savages. With the trend they are setting, can you say Threepete?
