Summary:

Colton Leet had a pair of multi-hit games to lead his Galena Little League all-star team to a sweep of Southwest Kansas Little League in the 2004 Kansas state tournament at Baxter Springs.

Leet's double and triple helped Galena to a 6-3 victory in the teams' first meeting, and he added a pair of hits and three runs scored in his team's 5-3 win the next evening.

With the wins, Galena advanced to the Midwest Region tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Galena raced to an early lead in both of its state tournament victories. In the first game, the District 2 champions struck for three runs in the first inning and added two more in the second to overcome an early 1-0 deficit. The next day, Galena scored twice in each of the first two innings and built a 5-0 lead before holding on for the win.

Shiloh Murphy allowed only two Southwest Kansas hits while pitching a complete game in the series opener. He also hit the series' only home run in the win.

Troy Albright scattered seven hits and hurled a complete game of his own in the clincher.

Southwest Kansas reached the state finals for the fourth time in five years, and finished as the Kansas runner-up for the third consecutive year. Galena was making its first state tournament appearance since 1977, when the league reached the state tournament's semifinal round before falling 9-8 to eventual champion Olathe West Little League.
