NEWPORTâ€“The Lake Region and North Country 12-U Cal Ripken baseball teams got together for a best of the three series starting last Thursday to see who be crowned the District Champions.
Lake Region, with their power bats and top notch pitching, needed just two games to take the title, winning 5-1 and 9-5.
Starting on the hill for game one were Orleans County Thunder teammates Parker Brown, for Lake Region, and TJ Santaw, for North Country.
The duo were fresh off of a championship run in Drummondville, where they were lights out on the mound for their select team.
The Lake Region Sun Devils U-16 girls softball team kept rolling along this past week, notching a pair of wins and a tie.
On Saturday, the Sun Devils atoned for an earlier defeat at the hands of the Lyndon Aâ€™s, with a 21-6 victory. The win marked the third time this summer LR has defeated an opponent whom they had earlier lost to.
GLOVERâ€“If you are a fan of both North Country and Lake Region baseball, things could not have turned out any better for you than they did on Saturday.
In the 10-U Cal Ripken District Tournament, three teams were vying for two spots at the State Championship to be held in Glover next weekend.
Lake Region, the host team, automatically qualified based on their status as tourney hosts, so it was between North Country and Three Rivers to see who would fill the final slot.
LR and NC squared off in the opening game, a 13-3 four inning win for Lake Region.
