On July 2, Washington County pitcher Thomas Spalding pitched a four-hit complete game shutout beating South Hardin 1-0 to advance the 11-12 year-olds to the state tournament in Louisville.

Washington County's lone run came in the bottom of the third when Evan Blake Burkhead scored on a hit by Matthew Bartley.

From that point, it all rested on the right arm of Spalding, who went the distance, striking out the side in the top of the sixth inning for the win.

WC advanced to the District 5 title game the night before by defeating Marion County 9-7.
