The 12-year-old all-stars had dreams of accomplishing something spectacular for their young age. The talented group of 13 was in contention to become the first Nevada representative at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.
It was a rocky road for Green Valley to reach the regional championship game in San Bernardino, Calif. The Nevada team fought back to collect three-straight victories after losing two in tournament play. Green Valley faced Oceanside American of Calif. in the finals of the Little League West Regional at Houghton Stadium Tuesday. Green Valley started strong and played hard, but lost to Oceanside 12-8. The Nevada all-star team fell one win short of accomplishing its dream.
“They don’t know what they accomplished,” said Rudy Reveles, Green Valley manager. “They are upset.”
