Peachtree City team's dreams dashed due to paperwork error
Peachtree City Little League officials learned late Thursday that their team had been stripped of its state championship and will not compete in the Southeast regional tournament that begins this weekend in Warner Robins.
The team from Columbus that Peachtree City defeated at state will move on to regionals.
The action came as a result of what one local official called “obscure administrative violations” regarding paperwork filed well before the state tournament.
The district administrator for the Peachtree City squad was notified at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday that the team was disqualified.
