“With our new complex, we will be hosting the 14-Under and 16-Under League Tournaments in town this summer, as well.

“The most exciting thing with the new complex will be next summer, when we will be hosting the 2014 Class-C 16-Under State Tournament, which will be a three-day event in July. Hopefully it will be a success and we will be given the opportunity to host state tournaments on a regular basis,” Messner said.
