Little League championship run ends for Park View Phillip Brents | Fri, Jul 27 2012 12:06 PM

There will be no Chula Vista team hoisting the prized Little League World Series championship banner this year after Park View suffered elimination last weekend in the California Sub-Division III Southern California tournament in Aliso Viejo.

Park View had advanced to the five-team Southern California regional tournament after successfully navigating the earlier District 42 and Section 7 championship tournaments, winning both.

But Park View apparently met its match with back-to-back losses to District 72 champion Corona National (8-6) and District 43 champion Highland (12-4) in games last Saturday and Sunday.

Also entered in the tournament were District 31 champion Encinitas and District 55 host Aliso Viejo.
Aliso Viejo dropped Encintas into the challenger bracket with a 16-7 victory on Sunday to join Corona National as the tournament’s two unbeaten teams heading into Monday’s round.

Park View finished 4-0 in the District 42 tournament and 4-1 in the Section 7 tournament, capturing the latter crown in the maximum number of games.

Park View claimed the section title in dramatic fashion as Marc Cole hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning to lift Park View past District 66 champion Spring Valley, 12-11, in a game played July 18 at District 22/Imperial Little League.

Park View also edged Eastlake (3-2) and Chula Vista American (9-8) in a pair of one-run thrillers in the district tourney.

“It was a memorable run for the 12-year-old team,” Park View Little League board president Rod Roberto said. “It is very difficult to win our district and even more difficult to win sectionals. We just ran into some tough teams in the sub-divisional round. I just told the coaches, parents and players ‘thank you’ for supporting Park View Little League and, that although today seems rough, their baseball journey is only beginning ...  just remember the games, the plays, and most off all, the friendships they made playing Little League baseball.”

Four District 42 teams advanced to championship games at the Section 7 tournament. Eastlake finished runner-up to Rancho San Diego in the 10-11 division while Luckie Waller recorded runner-up finishes to Twin Hills and Lemon Grove in the Junior and Senior divisions, respectively.
