Plato ski-daddled out of state tournament

It was one and done for the Plato Blue Jays in this year’s state Class C tournament, as five errors doomed the Region 7 champions in a 5-0 loss to 2016 state runner-up Sobieski on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Irish Yard in Green Isle.
Plato made an early exit from the state field as the Skis made an error-aided second-inning tally stand up before adding four more runs – all helped across by Blue Jay miscues – in the contest.
Sobieski starter Tyler Jendro kept the Blue Jays off-balance at the plate early as Plato struggled to put baserunners aboard for through the initial frames.
