Coach Ed Raymond hopes a hard schedule has gotten his team prepared for the challenges of a state tournament.
The Oldham Aces, based out of American Legion Post 39 in La Grange, will be in Benton this weekend for the U-17 state tournament.
The double-elimination tournament starts Thursday and runs through the weekend.
Oldham has played .500-ball during the season, which started in early June, Raymond said.
The Aces have traveled around the region playing in weekend tournaments.
