The White Rock 9/10 Selects took home top prize at the District 3 Tournament last weekend, beating Vancouver’s Hastings Little League 6-5 in the title game Sunday at Centennial Park.

The four-team tournament – which was originally scheduled as a six-team event until two teams dropped out – also included North Langley and Langley.

In the bronze-medal game, Langley defeated its North Langley brethren in a high-scoring 19-13 affair.

En route to the championship banner, White Rock defeated Langley (11-10), Hastings again (11-6) and North Langley (20-5), while also losing once to North Langley (15-12).

Earlier in the month, on the Canada Day weekend, White Rock’s Mini 8 team finished second in the Mini 8 All-Star Tournament, which was also hosted by the White Rock-South Surrey Baseball Association.

In the final, White Rock lost 16-8 to Hastings.

One more tournament is still on the horizon locally, as the District 3 11/12 Select event is slated for July 18-22 at Centennial Park.
