BERLIN- The Berlin Little League 7-8 All Stars won the tournament they hosted last weekend, continuing a big summer run for the local program.
The Berlin 7-8 team swept through the early rounds including an 8-0 win over East Wicomico, a 6-4 win over Delmar and a 3-1 win over Laurel. Berlin then fell, 4-0, to Delmar, but by virtue of sweeping their first three games, the 7-8 team earned a rematch with Delmar in the title game. In the championship game, Berlin edged Delmar, 4-3, to claim the title in its own tournament.
Berlin’s win in the 7-8 championship game continued an impressive run for the local program during the summer All-Star season. The rookie league team is still competing in tournaments including a tournament in Laurel this weekend. The 12-13 intermediate team advanced to the Maryland state championship tournament before bowing out, while both the 9-10 baseball and 9-10 softball teams reached the championship games in their respective District 8 tournaments before falling.
