White Rock baseball squad wins districts

White Rock's U9 team goes undefeated en route to a Little League BC District 3 Baseball Championship

A successful summer of baseball for a team of White Rock nine-year-olds ended with yet another win last weekend in Langley.

The White Rock all-star squad cruised to a Little League BC District 3 championship last weekend, winning eight games in a row, including a 13-10 win over Whalley in the title game.

Against Whalley, White Rock jumped out to a big, early 13-4 lead, with the pitching of Leif Friedrich and Sebastian Cazorla keeping the Whalley offence at bay.

At the plate, the Peninsula crew received timely hits from Jordan Hounsell, Lucas Johnson, Landen Hilditch and Adam Folia.

As the game progressed, White Rock’s bats cooled down, but a stout defence and more strong pitching – this time from Jackson Nadon and James Lawson – kept the team in front until the final out.

Earlier the same day, White Rock advanced to the championship game after knocking off Hastings (Vancouver) 14-3 in semifinal action.

Grayson Frers started on the hill for White Rock in that contest, and catching Jett Carroll led the way with two hits. Logan Johnston and Dylan Garland also fared well at the plate, rounding out what assistant coach Todd Nadon called “a true team effort.”

En route to the finals, White Rock also defeated South Vancouver, Kerrisdale, Trout Lake, Jericho, Little Mountain, and Whalley again.

The District 3 title wraps up a strong season for the summer-league all-star bunch; White Rock finished with an overall win-loss record of 16-1, and included a second-place finish at a tournament in Kelso, Wash.
