Lake Region Wins 12-U Cal Ripken Baseball Districts

June 30, 2014

BARTON-Three runs scored in the third inning was all of the offense the 12-U Cal Ripken District Championship baseball game would see, as Lake Region defeated their neighbors to the north, North Country, 3-0 to pick up the win and take home the hardware.
"I thought it was a really good effort and our pitching was outstanding," said LR coach Rick Hudson.
Said NC coach Mike LaCourse, "I thought it was a huge improvement from the last time we played them. Our boys really came around and started battling hard, but we just ran out of time."
