WATERTOWN — Mitchell White went 1-2 at the VFW 13-14 AA minors state tournament over the weekend.

White split its pool play games Friday and lost 11-0 to Rapid City Pony Saturday. Rapid City won the state title Sunday.

Against Rapid City, Brandon McKnight took the loss on the mound and had one strikeout. Mitchell had two hits in the win with Jeremiah Schmitz and Cooper Knutson each recording one.

“In our first game we played a little nervous but after that we started playing well and it carried through the tournament,” Mitchell White assistant coach Ryan Buck said.
