Clarke County All-Star 11/12 year old baseball team has won the District 3, Area 1 Championship after a decisive victory over Strasburg Tuesday night. The Clarke County bats and gloves pulled off the 10-3 victory after the game was suspended by a violent lightning storm that raced through the area Monday night.
Monday night’s rain delay was called at the bottom of the 2nd ending with Clarke County up by a score of 4 to 1. Play resumed on Tuesday night with the final result in Clarke County’s favor.
Clarke’s All Stars now move on to play Bridgewater at Elkton on tonight (Thursday) at 7:00pm and then play again at home in Clarke County on Friday at 6:00pm. The team will then travel back to Elkton on Saturday (if needed) for a double elimination match.
The winner of the series will move onto the Virginia State competition being hosted in Leesburg.
