The Feather River All-Stars junior Little League baseball team did something last week that hasn’t been done in Plumas County by a Little League baseball team before: the team won the sectional tournament to advance to the regional tournament.
The All-Stars, made up of players from Quincy, Portola and Loyalton, clinched their tournament win July 16 by taking down Gridley 10-7.
Feather River’s Little League team started its roll July 13 by defeating Gridley 16-10. The following day the team squeaked out a 7-6 victory against Peach Bowl. Feather River never faced Red Bluff, the other team competing for the section championship.
