The WDSA Gold beat the Fremont Force Bixby on Sunday, winning the age 12 and younger USA Softball of Nebraska C District 8 Tournament contested across three days at the Blair Youth Sports Complex.
Overall, Washington County teams representing Blair, Arlington and Fort Calhoun competed in four District 8 Tournaments in three locations last weekend.
In Blair during the 12U tourney, the hometown Diamonds and Chaos — and an Arlington team — played postseason softball. The Chaos posted a 2-2 tournament record, besting the Nebraska Force Elite 10-1 and the Oakland Rockets 10-6. It also had losses to Pender (4-3) and Cavalry 12U (11-0), though.
The Diamonds, meanwhile, went 1-2. They beat the Wayne Dirt Devils to start, 9-3.
Back-to-back 7-1 and 4-2 losses to the Nebraska Storm and Nebraska Edge, however, eliminated the Blair team from contention.
Arlington 12U team went 0-2 in Blair, too.
Four county teams competed in Bennington during the age 10 and younger District 8 Tournament last weekend. The 10U Blair Chaos team went 1-2 with a 6-3 victory against the Nebraska Storm's 9U squad. It also lost a 11-3 game to the Nebraska Force Elite and a 12-6 matchup with Mead.
The Fort Calhoun Pioneers 10U team went 1-2, too. They started with a 11-10 win against the Wayne Dirt Devils before back-to-back losses to the Bennington Badgers (9-4) and the Ashland Blue (14-5).
Arlington's pair of teams in West Point combined to go 0-for-4. The Eagles' closest game was a 10-5 loss to the Millard Fury Reinke squad.
Arlington Youth Sports' squad went 1-2 during the 14U USA Softball of Nebraska district tourney in West Point. The Eagles started with a 13-6 win against the Nebraska Edge before two losses eliminated their team from a district title.
Also in West Point, the Arlington age 18 and younger softball team earned a 1-2 record. It beat the Tekamah-Herman Black squad it faced after an 8-3 loss to the Nebraska Venom, but also lost an 9-8 game to be eliminated.
