While teams battled it out in a competitive bracket styled pool play round, both groups were enjoying their first glance at participating in a nationally sanctioned tournament.
After pool play and winning their bracket which included a team from Kentucky (Vipers Baseball), North Carolina (Diamond Baseball) and South Carolina (Myrtle Beach Pelicans), the 13U NEBA squad were among the top 16 teams who would play for the national championship. The defeated the GA Prospects (3 seed) and the Central Florida Pride (11 seed) before falling to Team Connecticut Baseball (TCB) in the quarterfinals. They were then eliminated from the tournament by the Connecticut Edge (2 seed). TCB and Connecticutt Edge then met in the finals where TCB prevailed, beating CT Edge 11-4 in the championship game.
