Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Three Camas Little League All-Star baseball teams captured district championship trophies and played at state tournaments in Gig Harbor, Oak Harbor and Vancouver during July.
The Camas 10- and 11-year-old All-Stars finished in first place at the District 4 tournament July 13, at the Harmony Sports Complex. They also became the first team from the league to win four state tournament games.
Camas, Kirkland, North Bothell and Pacific were the final four teams at state in Gig Harbor. Camas defeated Kirkland 6-3 July 20, lost to North Bothell 12-11 July 21, and knocked off defending state champion Federal Way 7-6 July 22.
“I’m proud of the way our kids responded,. They could have just rolled over losing that first game, but they didn’t,” said manager Andrew Ott. “Beating the state champions very was exciting for our boys. We felt like we could beat any team at that point.”
