The 8U Boone Equip team has a winner-take-all game on Tuesday evening for the Cal Ripkin Baseball Western Division Area 3 Tournament Championship. The team will rematch South Buncombe after the Boone team lost on Monday by an 8-1 score. 

The 7U and 9U teams finished as tournament runner-ups after falling in their respective championship games on Monday. The 7U team was defeated by East Rowan, 5-2 in a rain-shortened game. The 9U team lost to South Buncombe by a 9-0 score. 

All three teams have earned spots in the upcoming state tournament that will begin play this weekend. 

Still to come, the 10U and 12U teams will begin their tournaments later this week with both teams playing in Boone. Both tournaments start on Thursday.
