The Cats cruised through the tournament, posting a 3-0 mark in July 22-25 pool play, then besting Vermont 9-3 in the first round of the playoff bracket on July 27, en route to a 6-0 tourney performance. Newtown outscored opponents 57-19.
The Babe Ruth World Series is scheduled for August 10-17, in Lawrenceburg, Tenn.
