West Plainsâ€™ team is home from state and fifth place
finish after undefeated regular season
By PAUL DELANEY
A winning tradition is being built in West Plains Little League by coaches who revel in the history of the game they love.
Mike Paulson and Kerry Kelly have just helped guide their team of 13 and 14 year-olds to another state tournament appearance, equaling their fifth place finish of a year ago, finishing 1-2 at the Yakima event. After winning their first game against Richmond, 6-1, they lost to Kalama 11-1 before being eliminated by Bellevue, 6-3.
