REGION Talk about a dominating summer.

The 14U Bay State Brats had a blistering tournament season on the diamond scene, as the club, which featured several local standouts, won a whopping five championships including the NSA Massachusetts State title.

The Brats are an elite fast-pitch team based in the Merrimack Valley (Mass.) and Southern New Hampshire. The squad also won five tournaments in 2013, compiling a record of 48-6-1.

The 2014 team wound up with an impressive 36-5 record during the busy summer season. The Brats outscored their opponents by a 388-83 mark in those games, posting 15 shutouts in the process. The team went 5-1 in earning the Massachusetts State title.

The Brats had several local players from Belmont on the roster, including high school varsity starters Nicole Antonucci (third base) and Shannon Davies (pitcher/outfield). Julianna Estremera (pitcher/outfield) and Jordyn Lavallee (outfield) were other Belmont residents to contribute, while Franklin's Hailey Haskins was also a major component. Belmont High School varsity head coach Bill Clary was once again on the coaching staff for the Brats.
