The Anderson County Little League 11-and-under all-star team is hosting the District 3 tournament this week at Legion Park.

Over Father’s Day weekend, the all-stars traveled to Jeffersonville, Ind., to participate in the Jeffersonville/GRC Father’s Day weekend tournament.

By the end of the holiday weekend the 10-member team had smiles on their faces and trophies in their hands.

Anderson defeated the host Jeffersonville team 5-1 in the pool play opener, then defeated Corydon, Ind., 7-1, in the second game to earn the tournament's top seed.

In the semi-finals, the local team routed Corydon 19-0, but in the finals, Anderson had to overcome a 6-0 deficit to Scott County, Ind., before claiming an 8-6 win.

The District 3 tournament is set to run through July 11. There is no admission charge.
