Encinitas Little League's All Stars Continue Tournament Run
All four ELL teams (9-10, 10-11, Majors (11-12) and Junior (13-14) year old teams) hoisted District 31 Champion banners, going a combined 18-1 in District play to sweep the divisions they entered.
Encinitas did not slow down in Section level play, which pits District Champion winners from throughout the County, with the winners advancing to Subdivision (State) Tournament play. ELL teams are a combined 11-0 in Section play, with the 9-10, 10-11 and Majors teams having already secured Section titles to advance to State, and the Junior (13-14 year old) team in the Section Championship round on Wednesday, July 16. ELL’s teams are a combined 29-1 in all-star play as of July 15.
The State Tournament consists of the top 10 teams in each age group out of approximately 400 Southern California leagues at each level that began all-star play.
Having one team reach the State Tournament in a given year is a great accomplishment for any league, but to have three and possibly four teams from ELL still in the running for the coveted Southern California Champion banner has already made this the best ever year for the league, currently in its’ 57th season, since 1957.
