The Green River Knights showed the state what they're made of at the Wyoming Legion Baseball A tournament in Torrington last week, taking third.

The Knights faced stiff competition at the start of the tournament Wednesday, entering as the fourth seed for the west and facing the first seeded team from the east, the Wheatland Lobos. The Knights upset the Lobos, which had entered the tournament off of a 3-0 streak in the eastern district tournament, with a final score of 11-6.

The Knights' strong play carried them to a second victory Thursday, earning a 12-9 win over the Lovell Mustangs. However, their good fortune would not last.

During Friday's game, the Knights were handed their first loss by a dominant Cody Cubs team in a game ending with a 15-1 score. The cubs would eventually win the tournament.

The Knights would be eliminated from the tournament Saturday by the Cheyenne Hawks in an 11-1 game.

Two knights would be named All-State 1st Team selections. Those players are Tommy Kelly and Joe Schultz.
