Local Post-Season Tournaments! TOC's and All-Stars Brackets!

(** Please note - all brackets below are from the District 39 website; THEY will update - I have NO control over how quickly or slowly that takes place. **)
Our 7/8 and 8/9 teams are listed with our upper division All-Star teams HERE.
The 7/8 Tournament is being hosted right here in SLV (bracket HERE)! Due to prior field maintenance commitments at the high school, we will be hosting most (if not all) of our tournament at Highlands fields. We hope the 7/8 families will chip in and help with Snack Shack and field prep and clean up duties, along with many board members who have already committed their time to the task. SLV eliminated in Game 13, Cap/Soquel defeated Scotts Valley and became 7/8 Champion after winning Game 14.
The 8/9 Tournament (click HERE for the tournament bracket) will be hosted by Scotts Valley LL. SLV was eliminated in Game 10, Santa Cruz American was ultimately triumphant against Scotts Valley, claiming the 8/9 championship in Game 15.
Our AAA Nationals will be representing SLVLL in the Minors/AAA Tournament of Champions (bracket HERE), hosted by Pajaro Valley LL. (Seventeen-game tournament, nine teams - LOST first game (Game #3) to Cap/Soquel, 8-2; WON second game (Game #7) over Live Oak, 5-2; WON third game (Game #11) over Santa Cruz American, 10-8; WON fourth game (Game #14) over Aptos, 12-11; WON fifth game (Game #15) over Cap/Soquel, 11-7; WON sixth game (Game #16) over Scotts Valley, 6-5; LOST seventh (and final, for the championship) game to Scotts Valley, 12-3.)

Some tournament rationale and apology to SLE parents:
The Tournament at AA level is for fun only. There is no advancement at the AA level to a district championship.
Our tournaments at AAA and Majors serve to determine a season champion and entry into District 39's Tournament of Champions (TOC) that begins on June 12. This is the fifth year that SLVLL has used a tournament method to determine our TOC representative in AAA and Majors.
The Science Camp Issue: Science Camp officials have traditionally been very accommodating to SLVLL as far as releasing players to play on those game nights. We will have 8 teams (AAA and Majors) over two nights needing release of players and the logistics of that effect. SLVLL understands that parents have paid money for this camp experience and most of us have had to (in the past) remove our own kids and do the whole interruption of their experience. We apologize to SLE 5th grade parents for this hassle and will look in the future to try to better configure school commitments or our tournament process. Thank you for understanding.
