The Bantam A Jackson team had another strong tourney but could not get past a talented Sun Valley squad.

The 14U team shutout the Jr. Grizzlies 3-0 in the opening round and edged the Lightning 2-1 in their second game. An 8-0 whitewash of Park City earned Jackson a showdown with Sun Valley where Jackson was beat 5-1.

Coach Drew Akins regrouped his squad for a rematch against Sun Valley in the championship game where things went a little better, but Jackson lost that one 5-3 to finish the Mountain High Shootout with a record of 3-2.
