In the championship game of the District 14 11-Year-Old All-Stars Tournament, the Windermere-National team cruised to a 13-1 victory over South Lake Little League’s American team. Three of those runs came via the bat of Wyatt Archer, who stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and drove in all three of his teammates. Wyatt’s big day at the plate has made him our Athlete of the Week.
