The All-Star squads from Sparks Centennial Little League continue to cut through the brackets at the Nevada District 1 All-Star Tournament with all three different age groups remaining undefeated in play.

For the Centennial 10s, the All-Stars have won three straight games to put themselves in a semi-final game tonight against rival Washoe Little League. First pitch is set for 8:00 p.m. with the winner taking a spot in the championship game Friday. A loss would drop the SC 10s into the loser's bracket for a game on Tuesday night.

Like its counterparts, the 11-year-old team representing Sparks Centennial has also taken care of business in a trio of contests. The Centennial 11s will now look to remain perfect as they do battle with the group from South Tahoe Little League tonight at 8:00. A win garners a position in the championship finale Friday while a loss puts the Centennial 11s in a loser's bracket contest Tuesday in order to remain alive.

For the Centennial 12s, who opened tournament play on Sunday after a bye with a victory over Carson Valley Little League, they will face-off against the rival All-Star squad from Washoe Little League on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Another win would earn the 12s a day off until resuming play on Saturday night, but a loss would drop SC into the loser's bracket for a contest on Friday.

While things have ran smoothly for each of the Sparks Centennial crews, results have been the exact opposite for the squads from Sparks National. Three straight losses in the tournament for both teams in the 10 and 11-year-old divisions knocked SN out of play in those respective brackets. The Sparks National 12s dropped their first game of the tournament and thus play Tuesday against Truckee Little League at 5:30 p.m.
