The Premier Athletic Club (PAC) 13 Team is a state champion. After claiming the sixth seed in pool play Friday and Saturday, the PAC 13-year-olds won successive single elimination games Sunday against the Lockport Cobras, the Woodford County Crush and the Mattoon Hit Men to claim their second state championship in as many years.

This is the same squad that captured World Series honors as 11-year-olds in Columbus, Indiana in 2011. The team members are Brett Koester, Mason Hull, Cody Jansen, Drew Gibson, Brent Beals, Colin Funneman, Lee Hardiek, Ryan Sandifer, Ian Addis, Kyle Jansen and Eric Kremer.

The team is coached by Jeff Hardiek, Chris Koester, Larry Jansen and Ted Funneman.
