1-2 record in State Pool Play; Aberdeen Invitational Champions
Pierre Post 8's 13-14 Teeners, another young squad in a

The 13-14 Teeners suffered the rough luck of drawing three of the state's
best five within their own pool at the State 13-14 Majors Teener Tournament.
Following an impressive 17-1 win over the Black Hills Americans, losses to
Huron and Aberdeen spoiled the hopes for Post 8.
Scott Cichos, Ryan Lauseng, Nolan Merrill and Ryan Yackley led the squad on

15-year-olds who will make an impact at the A Teener level next year, along
with the pitching of Lauseng.
Seven of the 15 players can return to the 13-14 level next season.
2005 Season Capsule
Coach: James Berreth
State: 3rd Place in Blue
A young 13-14 Teener squad progressed from an 8-15 start, playing competitive
baseball in the state tournament and coming two runs away from a spot in the
final four of the State VFW 13-14 Teener Tournament.
Only two players, Graham Schuetzle and Evan Fuller, had played Teener baseball
before, and both were the leaders on a squad that will help make up a young A
Teener squad in 2006.
Schuetzle led the team with a .442 average, while Fuller hit .304.
Dillon Gran was second on the squad with a .375 average and also led the
pitching staff (6-2, 4.23 ERA). Evan Moore led Post 8 with 12 doubles while
batting .307. Moore also went 4-2 on the mound with a 4.31 earned run average.
Adam O'Day hit .353 as a 13-year old, and Ryan Hahn put together a .337 average.
O'Day, Joseph Wieseler, Kris Hewlett and Miles Schock can return for another
year at the 13-14 level, while the rest of the squad must move up to the 15-16
With a Legion squad that will be made up of a lot of 16- and 17-year olds, many
players off this squad will vie for spots at the A Teener level, while the rest
will hone their skills for a season at the B Teener level.
2004 Season Capsule
State Champions, Region 4AA Champions, Pierre 13-14 Teener Tournament
Champions, Aberdeen 13-14 Tournament Champions, Set Post 8 record by winning
19 consecutive games.
You name it, the Pierre Post 8 13&14 Teeners accomplished it. They
broke the win streak record that the Post 8 legion set two seasons ago by winning their
final 19 games. They won the Region 4AA crown in three games, two of those via the ten-run
rule. In front of huge crowds at Hyde Stadium, they dominated their first two games, then
held on to an early lead and defeated Rapid City American to become state champions. The
13&14 Teeners were only in their second year of existence, the first where a tryout
was held, and the squad prospered. Pierre did not lose a contest away from home, and didn't
lose a game once June was over. Of the 15 kids, 12 were 14-year olds who will move up to A
or B Teeners next year. The other three will return to the squad next year and have their
chance to be leaders while attempting to defend their state crown. Indeed, it was a teen
dream for the Post 13&14 Teeners in 2004.
