Maggie Ferril, a 4th grader at Orono Intermediate School, placed 2nd in the 2018 Minnesota Twins Baseball Skills competition!
Nearly 1,000 boys and girls ages six to fourteen participated in the competition consisting of batting, fielding, throwing and running skills. At the conclusion of the summer, the top ten finishers in each age category were invited to compete in the Champions Day finals.
This year Champions Day was held at Target Field on Saturday, September 22. Ferril qualified for the finals when she attended the Twins Camp in Delano last August, impressing coaches with her skill level in all four categories. Ferril competed in the 4th grade bracket and finished strong, taking 2nd place overall in the competition.
