Crescenta Sports Association’s Crescenta Valley 11U Pony All-Stars captured the Bronco-11 championship at the league’s Battle of the Foothills tournament, held June 22-24 at Montrose Park and Paradise Canyon Elementary in La Cañada.

The squad went 4-0, allowing just four runs all weekend. The team pulled off a triple play during its Saturday pool-play game versus San Marino – a feat that was highlighted on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”

The CSA all-stars move on to the summer-capping Pony tournament, which, for area Bronco-11 teams, opens July 5 in West Covina.
