O’Fallon Flight 3rd grade is now 20-0 on the season after winning the Kim Jackson Memorial tournament in Effingham, Illinois. Flight bested MetroEast Ball Hoggs, Olney, and Metamora Redbirds in Saturday pool play with all three wins by double digit points. 

Entering bracket play on Sunday, the boys beat a talented St. Joe’s Royals to advance to the championship game against Nashville. Flight came to Effingham with the intention of staying unbeaten, and they did just that by finishing off Nashville by a score of 32-12. Flight 3rd grade is back in action again in 2 weeks at the Reebok Series in Saint Louis.
