Season leaders find success in tourney

By The Spokesman-Review
 

The Spokane Valley Girls Softball season-ending double-elimination tournament results were at once predictable yet also unexpected.

Regular season champions captured three of the four tournaments, but a couple of teams came from nowhere to reach the finals, one of them winning a title, the other forcing a second game before succumbing.

M.I.S.T. (10-5), which tied for fourth in the 12U league, three games behind regular season champ Chuck’s Girls, knocked off Chuck’s in the second round and then beat them in best-of-two championship games.

In the 14U league, Hu Hot, with just a 3-7 regular season record, stunned M.I.S.T., which had lost just one league game, on the way to the tourney finals. But Testcomm, LLC wrapped up a 13-0-1 season in the title game.

Hu Hot (13-1) didn’t finish unbeaten, forced to two games in the 18U finals, but eventually prevailed over regular season runner-up Dent Guy.

In 10U the two regular season unbeatens met twice, champion UNICEP (14-0) winning both.
