  • Little League all-stars named

    Both of the Meadow City’s Little League organizations have announced lineups of all-star teams representing several age groups.

    All-star district tournaments begin Friday, July 8, in Taos, which takes over hosting duties from Raton. Tournaments will run for a week, with winners advancing to state.
    Locally, most Little League regular seasons have concluded, with the exception of Las Vegas Little League’s Minors Division. That division’s tournament was to crown a champion by Wednesday.

    The all-star lineups are as follows.

    The dramatic comeback victory continues a string of titles for manager Rick Armijo’s Red Sox, who dominated their regular season opponents before running into some strong challenges in the LVLL playoffs this past week.

    No team pushed the Sox more than the Leonard Lucero-led Cardinals did on Saturday morning.

    The Lady Devils had no such problems, building a 10-0 lead early and ending up with a 15-0 shutout to repeat as champions.

    Alycia Hernandez scored three runs to lead the Lady Devils; she went 1 for 1 with one run batted in, drawing walks in her other two plate appearances.
