New Hartford and CVA Little Leagues Meet Tough Opponents Over Weekend
Two local Little League teams advanced to the Sectionals this week after winning the District 10 tournament in their respective age groups. New Hartford's 10-12 group and Central Valley Little Leagues 8-10 year olds advanced with tournament wins this week. Unfortunately, both teams saw their seasons come to an end over the weekend.
New Hartford won the 10-12 District 10 Championship and faced Rotterdam in the Section 2 North Finals at New Hartford Little League. New Hartford lost the first game to Rotterdam and then lost the second game in the best of 3 series to close out their season. During the District 10 tournament, New Hartford lost their 1st game to Whitesboro, but then fought back through the losers bracket and went undefeated to win the tournament.
In the 8-10 year old bracket, CVA (Ilion-Mohawk) went undefeated to easily win their District 10 tournament. In Sectionals, they played in a winner takes all format. They won their 1st game in District 37 against North Central, but then faced Saratoga from District 2. CVA lost in West Utica on Thursday, and then traveled to District 2 where they fell to Saratoga to bring their season to a close.
"Despite New Hartford and Central Valley coming up short in sectionals, I am extremely proud of how they represented District 10," said Mike Gentile, District 10 Administrator.
