SALEM, Va. — The East Cobb (Ga.) Bullets 2021 Heath team won the ASA/USA 12 and under Class A national championship on Sunday with big contributions from two local middle school players.

The team went 9-0 in the national tournament, outscoring opponents 48-12, and collectively batting .331.

Ensley hit .583 with seven RBIs. She had 19 putouts and 26 assists on defense. Hopkins was 4-0 in the circle with no earned runs allowed in 23 innings. She pitched a perfect game and two shutouts.
