The tournaments started the week of June 28-July 1 with round-robin seeding games that determined the match-ups for the single elimination tournaments July 5-8. All games were played at Nelson Field, Hailey.

Biggest surprise came in the eight-team 11-12 Little League.

Idaho Mountain Express, seeded #8 after three losses in the round robin, streaked all the way to the championship.

The Express squad coached by Jeff Gear and Tyrel Anderson upset #1-seeded Cox Communications 10-9 and beat #4-seeded Atkinsons’ 1-0 in its first two games of the tournament.

On the winning Express team were Gavin Admire, August Danielson, Brendan Freund, Zack Israel, Max Jones, Jordan Levin, Juan Martinez, Fabian Rojas, Tanner Sanders, Scott Smith, Miles Sweek, Miles Vercelli and Hunter Weaver.

Then, in the July 7 championship game, Mountain Express beat #3-seeded Jones Electric 11-5 in five innings.

The third-place winner was #7-seeded Cynthia Unger DDS by an 8-2 score over Atkinsons’.

In the seven-team 9-10 division, #6-seeded Marketron downed #4-seeded Lefty’s by a score of 8-7 in four innings to capture first place. Marketron had beaten #1-seeded Power Engineers and Lefty’s got past #2 Andrews Heating in the semi-finals of the tournament.

Third place went to Power Engineers, a 6-5 winner over Andrews Heating July 8.
