BARTON-This past weekend, North Country and Lake Region completed the 12-U District Championship Tournament.
On Thursday, North Country took it to Lake Region, beating them 10-0 in four innings.
This put the pressure on Lake Region to defeat Northfield Saturday, then win back-to-back games over NC to take the title.
Lake Region cruised on Saturday, despite a change in venue to Barton due to the saturated field at Gardner Park and a one hour rain delay.
Solid pitching and timely hitting were the keys to the North Country 10 & Under All-Star teamâ€™s success at the Tournoi National in Drummondville from June 21st -23rd.
NC pitchers Jack Young, Bryce â€śGunneyâ€ť Gunn, David Lessard and Isaac Bliss combined to allow only five runs in four games to take home the championship banner.
