Angels win state baseball crowns

A number of local players were on the Milwaukee Angels select youth baseball teams that swept USSSA state championships at a tournament in Oconomowoc.

The U-9, U-10 and U-12 teams all won their first state crowns, while the U-11 squad took its third straight title and moved its tournament record to 15-0 in those three years.

The Angels also swept three championships in the USSSA Slugfest at Waukegan, Ill., last weekend, winning at the U-9, U-10 and U-12 levels.

The U-12 team will visit Cooperstown, N.Y., at the end of July.

Local players are as follows: U-9, Mason Wendt of Whitefish Bay; U-10, Matt Anderson and Jake Lukash of Whitefish Bay and Jackson Mandella of Bayside; and U-12, Chris Zak of Shorewood.
