The American Legion baseball team from Albemarle Post 74 will try to continue its unbeaten run this summer at next week's Southeast Region Tournament.
Post 74 won its second straight Legion state title with a 10-5 win over Post 217 Big Island on Friday in Leesburg. Albemarle rallied from a 5-2 hole in the ninth inning to tie the game and force extra innings, then scored five runs in the top of the 10th to clinch the win.
Friday's win capped a 4-0 performance for Post 74 at the state tournament. Albemarle is now a perfect 24-0 on the season.
Albemarle will open play at the Southeast Region Tournament in North Carolina next Thursday. Last year, Post 74 came up two wins short of a trip to the Legion World Series.
