Despite a 17-21-1 regular season record, the Woodinville American Legion "A" team (16-and-under) got hot and went 3-1 in the district tournament, including an 8-1 romp over Inglemoor- based FM Sports in the title game to capture the Area 1 South Division championship at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue. Lucas Ching went the distance for the win and Spencer Jones was named the tournament’s MVP.
The boys moved on to the state tourney, which began this weekend in Lacey, Wa.
