“We’ve got the growing pains to go through,” said All-Stars coach Brad Bowers. “They certainly have the ability and the talent.”

“Our goal this season is to at least get to the state tournament,” said coach Bowers. “That way, as 11- and 12-year-olds they’ll have that under their belt.”

It’s a tall order, but they can measure up.
