MIDLOTHIAN - Rolling with a four-man squad, the New Carlisle Newts struggled to get the bats going all weekend at the World Wiffleball Championship. The squad of Aidan Cotter, Garrett Curless, Koby Keck, and Kody Webb fell short off bringing a three-peat back to Wiffletown USA.
With only one pool play loss in eight previous appearances, the Newts stumbled to a 2-2 record on Saturday. While Sunday started promising with Cotter tossing a perfect game in the first round against the Ohio Knuckleheads, the Newts dropped a close one to eventual champion Clutch Players in the Sweet Sixteen.
