Little League all-stars open Friday
Carson Valley Little League’s 11-12 and 9-10 year-old all-star teams both drew byes this week in their District 1 Little League Tournament brackets. That isn’t making life any easier, though, because both teams can expect to face highly challenging tests when they open on Friday in Carson City.
Carson Valley’s 11-12 year-olds are scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. game at Governors Field against the winner between Wednesday’s meeting between Reno National and Reno Continental, two traditional powers in the western Nevada district. Reno Continental defeated Carson Valley in the tournament finals last year.
Meanwhile, Carson Valley’s 9-10 year-old squad opens Friday at 5:30 p.m. against the winner between Wednesday’s first-round matchup between Washoe and Valley Providence.
Play in the double elimination tournaments will continue through July 1.
