Local teams do well in state competition

There were three Cal Ripken State Baseball Tournaments in Scottsbluff and Gering this past weekend and the local teams did well.

Gering hosted the 10-year old tournament and finished second to North Platte. Up next is the regional tournament in Bismark, North Dakota. North Platte has decided not to attend, giving Gering the opportunity. A decision has not yet been made on whether the local squad will go.

The Scottsbluff 11-year olds won their tournament with a championship game win against North Platte. Scottsbluff has turned down its bid to the regional tournament in Minnesota.

The Scottsbluff 12-year old team will go to the regional tournament in Alliance. The squad finished second to Alliance in the state tournament, but gets a bid since Alliance has an automatic birth as host.
