Sitka’s Little League All Stars lost a hard-fought series in Wrangell over the weekend, 3 games to 1. Anchorage’s Abbott-O-Rabbit claimed the Little League title, and will represent the state in the regional tournament in August.
After losing the first two games of the series, the Sitka All Stars held on to game three, posting a 4-to-3 victory over Anchorage.
In game four, Anchorage put up most of its runs late in the game. Sitka couldn’t come back from the deficit. Game 4 ended 1-to-11.
Coach Rich Riggs says he’s proud of his team, and that they created good memories on the field and off.
Sitka’s car owners may soon see a fee increase. The assembly voted 5 to 1 Tuesday night to raise vehicle registration fees. Money raised through the tax would go towards the city’s roads. more
