The U11 Lake Norman Copperheads won the Triple Crown State Championship in Morganton June 6. The team won the tournament in a close 9-8 game against the Charlotte Hurricanes.

The Copperheads outscored their opponents 48-14, while going 5-0 in the tournament to claim the title.

"The kids worked hard all winter and spring to get ready for this type of competition," said coach John Brock in a statement. "We are the definition of a team - we have no superstars - just a group of kids that love the game and their teammates."
