Ther Rattlers opened up the State Tournament with an 11-1 run rule loss. Liberal followed up the loss though with wins over Marion 3-1 on Saturday, Winfield 4-3 on Sunday, Parsons 12-3 Monday afternoon, and Ottawa Monday night.
The 11-year olds will advance on to Regionals which will be next weekend in Lyons.
