The Little League all-star season officially came to an end last week for Washington County, after the 11-12-year-old softball team was eliminated in group play at the state tournament.
WC lost the first game of the tournament to Valley Sports 14-2, but bounced back for a 15-13 win over Russell-Flatwood after trailing 11-5 earlier in the game.

That win marked the last of the season for Washington County, as they faced North Laurel on Tuesday, dropping a lopsided 14-1 contest.
The lone win of the state tournament proved to be an impressive one for WC, however. Not only because of the valiant comeback, but because Russell-Flatwood went on to win the rest of their games to claim the state title.
The 9-10-year-old Washington County softball all-stars were defeated in district play the previous week, with district champion Marion County going on to claim the state championship for the age group.
