The busy summer sports season is over and what a successful campaign it was for many teams and individual athletes in the Sun Gazette’s coverage areas.
Teams and individuals in various sports won different championships or placed high in competitions. Champions were crowned in Little League, Babe Ruth, American Legion, travel and college baseball; in Little League softball; in swimming and diving; and in AAU girls basketball, the Fairfax Stars 18-under squad finished third in a national tourney.
The Washington Golf & Country Club swim and dive teams continued their streaks of winning league crowns – the 24th straight for the divers. Swimmers and divers won numerous events at individual all-star events.
Langley High School graduate Kelly Chinn shot a 63 in an amateur golf tournament.
The Vienna Little League 10-11 baseball all-stars won district, state and region crowns for an undefeated season.
Yes, it was a championship summer season by many teams and individuals.
