" Quincy tops Westwood The Quincy Little League's boy's major's championship team, the Mariners, traveled to Westwood June 23 to par- ticipate in Northern Califor- nia's District 48 Tournament of Champions, which includ- ed other first-place teams from neighboring leagues: the Feather River, Loyalton, Susanville, and Westwood. In the 9 a.m. game, Quincy defeated the Susanville Dodgers 14-7 to get into the next round of play. In the 11 a.m. game, West- wood's Pirates defeated Feather River's Indians and moved into the evening championship game. In the mid-day game, Quin- cy defeated Loyalton's Blue Jays 11-5 and earned a berth in the evening championship game against Westwood. After having already won two games earlier in the day, Quincy's Mariners faced off against Westwood's Pirates in the championship game, with the cheer "one more time," and proceeded to de- feat a good Westwood team 9- 3 to take home the TOC tro- phy. After the long day, the Mariners retired to Buffalo Chips Pizza in Westwood for a well-deserved celebration. Quincy's hit parade was led by catcher/outfielder Stephan Johnson, with six hits for the day, while Jacob Hedrick, Ben Ricks, Muir Morrison and Allen Gruner each contributed four hits. Quincy's starting pitching trio of Morrison, Gruner and Hemsley allowed a mere four earned runs on nine hits and nine walks in 18 innings. The offense punched out 2,5 clean hits and received 20 walks in 16 innings, with the big clutch hits coming from Stef Johnson and Ben Ricks. The defensive "plays of the day" were made by left fielder Vaughn Vajgert ,with two stellar catches in the Su- sanville game. The Mariners were man- aged by Russ Morrison, with coaches Greg Gruner and Ray Hemsley. After taking the Quincy Little League tlUe, the Mariners went on to win the TOC championship.
