The Salem AAA all-stars won the District 7 Dixie League baseball championship at Green Hill Park last weekend and will now head to Madison Heights on July 8 for the Dixie League state tournament.
Salem cruised to the title, opening with a 12-1 win over Glenvar on Thursday night. On Friday Glenvar defeated North Roanoke and on Saturday Salem eliminated North Roanoke, setting up a Salem-Glenvar rematch on Sunday evening. Salem won that game, 11-1, to win the tournament.
Green Hill Park also played host to the District 7 O-Zone tournament, and North Roanoke came out on top in that one. Glenvar beat Mount Pleasant but lost to North Roanoke twice for elimination. Salem did not have an O-Zone team in the three-team tourney.
Roanoke Area Youth Softball Association(RAYSA) games were being played at the James I. Moyer Complex this week. Salem had a team in the 10-and-Under division and the Salemites fell to South County Red in the opening round Monday night. The tournament is double elimination and championship games are scheduled for 10, 12 and 16 year old divisions tonight at the Moyer Complex.
