Conyers Post 77, which won the 2009 Georgia American Legion title, has moved onto bigger things.
Coach Eddie Bagwell’s bunch left Wednesday for the Southeast Regional Legion Championship Tournament in Sumter, S.C. Here’s a look at how Conyers has fared against some of the best teams from the U.S. and beyond so far.
Conyers defeated the South Carolina Legion champs, Chapin Post 193, 3-0 on Thursday night in the opening games for both squads. Cameron Gibson, Travis Tartleton and Brandon Crumbley each had an RBI apiece in the win.
In their second game, Conyers knocked off the Legion champs from Bayamon, Puerto Rico, 2-0 last night. Gibson knocked in both runs, and has three RBI in two tournament games.
