The Methow Valley U12 baseball team traveled to the San Juan Islands Baseball Tournament June 3-5 in Friday Harbor, and took top honors with four wins and one loss in tournament play against teams from San Juan, Orcas and Lopez Islands.

The tournament highlight was an exciting victory over the Orcas Island U13 team. The team also received the high honor of “playing baseball the right way” from the veteran umpires.
