It will be a full month since the last time the White Rock-Los Alamos All-Star junior softball team took the field when it starts the Southwest Regional championship tournament.
The Little League regional tournament starts Friday in Santa Fe. The WR-LA team will take on the Vidalia, La., All-Stars, the Louisiana state champion, in the opening round Friday at noon.
All of the tournament games will be played at Bicentennial Park in Santa Fe. WR-LA, which won the District 1 tournament, got an automatic bid into the regional since District 1 is the host district this year.
WR-LA claimed the district championship and the berth at regionals with two wins over the Santa Fe All-Stars early in July, but hasn’t had any competition since that time. WR-LA manager Roger Anaya said it’s been a challenge to keep the team sharp and ready for the regional tournament, but he thinks if his players can get mentally in the ballgame early, they should be OK.
“It may be at the beginning we’ll have some jitters, but we’ll put everything behind us,” he said. “We have to make sure we stay focused. We can’t make mistakes. That could be the difference in these games.”
