Newcastle Longhorns Sr. Babe Ruth baseball team went undefeated in a three game series last weekend in Chadron Nebraska. The Longhorns notched wins against  the Scottsbluff, Gering, and Chadron American Legion teams. In their first game against Scottsbluff the Longhorns were never challenged and ended the game early on a mercy rule in the 3rd inning 13 to 1. In the second game some defensive lapses allowed the Gering team to stay in the game although the Newcastle team finished strong in a 17 – 11 victory. While the last game was never in doubt the home team did force a full 7 inning game with late runs, with the Longhorns winning 12 to 2. Newcastle will travel to Worland this Thursday to begin the quest to repeat as State Champions.  All the games in Worland will be broadcast on KASL.
