It was a dramatic ending to the Mid Valley Swim League Championship Saturday at the Pitman High pool with the Turlock Seadogs skimming through at the end to pull out a 6.5 point victory to claim their fifth consecutive title.
It took five games in five days, but the Turlock American 12-year-olds are the 2016 Section 6 Champions after the Little League All-Star team battled its way out of the loser's bracket and went on to top the Delta All-Stars in back-to-back games, ending on Wednesday, 9-6.
Tuesday and Wednesday marked the Section 6 final for the Turlock American 11-year-old All-Stars who met Morada at Madison Park in Stockton, but in the end, none of the games went well for the Americans who met their match.
The Turlock American 10-year-olds have looked different since losing in their opening contest to Los Banos in the District 73 All-Star tournament, capturing back-to-back wins in a distinguished fashion.
Turlock National 12-year-old Joseph Pagola drilled a three-run homer over the left field wall at Julien field in Wednesday's elimination game against Los Banos to give his team a 16-4 mercy-rule win after a powerful performance that ended in the fourth inning.
