The District 48 Little League, which includes all four communities in Plumas County, is nearing the end of its season and preparing for regional competitions.
Players from all teams will compete, often together, as all-star teams to battle it out for a spot at the section tournaments.
The girls’ teams will play in three district tournaments. The girls’ 9 – 10 teams will play June 22 in Chester. A team made up of players from Portola, Quincy and Loyalton will compete with the Chester/Greenville team and a team from Burney.
On June 29, girls aged 11 – 12 and 13 – 14 will play in Burney. Portola’s girls will be the only team from Plumas County playing in the age 13 – 14 tournament.
Seven teams will compete in the age 9 – 10 boys’ tournament in Portola on June 24. Chester and Greenville will form a team, as will Portola and Loyalton. Quincy will have its own team.
The age 11 – 12 boys’ tournament will be held in Alturas on June 26. Portola/Quincy/Loyalton will take on Greenville/Chester/ Westwood along with three other teams.
Greenville will host the final tournament June 28 for boys aged 13 – 14. Greenville and Chester all-stars will form a team, as will Portola and Quincy all-stars. Susanville, Alturas and Inter Mountain out of Fall River will also compete.
