“We were close enough to grab it, but we just didn’t grab it,” said team manager Rick Armijo of his Las Vegas Little League 11-12 All-Stars’ run at the state title this past week in Taos.
Las Vegas reached the final four of the tournament, which brought the best majors division teams in nine districts from around the state.
The run ended Wednesday with a 14-2 defeat to Carlsbad.
“I’m real proud of the kids,” Armijo said. “We had a great run. We were part of the last 48 players (in the age division) to be playing in the state.”
