Gallatin Valley Outlaws Head to State Tournament

Posted: Updated:

Coming into the season, the Gallatin Valley Outlaws had high expectations.

Throughout the year, those goals have remained the same as the team finished at the top of conference.

Now they can scratch off another mark by earning a spot in the state tournament.

"It's kind of surreal thinking that we have a chance to go to regional’s,” said Brice McCauley. “It's a big deal. We're going up to Lewistown with the hopes that we can just ride it out and stay hot like we are."

Last week the squad won the district tournament where they finished four and oh over the four day span.

Now they hope to take that momentum to Lewistown.

"I thought the number one thing for us in the whole tournament was how out pitchers performed,” said head coach Duwayne Scott. “To only give up six earned runs in four games, I thought was very impressive from our pitching staff."

Going into the state tourney, there are some areas where coach believes the team can improve.

"I think the bottom part of our batting order is going to have to come up with some huge hits for us,” said Coach Scott. “The middle part of our batting order has done well for us all season long. The bottom part is going to have to produce for us a little bit."

Getting to the state tournament is one team goal, but their aspirations don't stop there.

The state title winner earns a spot at regional’s in Alaska.

"Our whole goal at the beginning of the year was to go to the state tournament and we want to win it,” said short stop and pitcher Billy Mourer. “We want to go to Alaska so bad. Winning district was just another step closer to going to state for us."

"I expect them to be poised,” Coach Scott said. “We have a pretty senior-laden group. They don't get too excited over anything. They're just going to be pretty even keeled and go out and play the game."
