Food, fun and fireworks are right around the corner as Southern Arizona communities prepare for July 4.

Western outlasts Tanque Verde in first game of District 5 50/70 championship series

Western Little League had to shift its focus after learning it was playing a different opponent than originally scheduled Saturday in the District 5 50/70 All-Stars tournament at Arthur Pack Regional Park.

Thornydale was slated to face Western in a winner’s bracket game Saturday night but Western manager Brian Alday and his team found out midday that they would face Tanque Verde instead.

“We were going to handle it any way, whoever it was that we were going to play,” said Alday, whose team defeated Tanque Verde 11-10 on Saturday night. “We still have to strap it on and get out on the field and play … it didn’t matter who we were going to play.”

Multi-talented Brian Alday coached Western LL 50-70 All-Stars to win in the opening game of the District 5 championship series.

Thornydale, which defeated Tanque Verde 10-3 on Friday, was disqualified from the tournament by Little League International Tournament officials for an undisclosed reason.

Western is playing Tanque Verde in a best-of-three series for the district title and opportunity to play in the state tournament in Nogales starting July 11. The second game of the series is Monday at Arthur Pack at 6:30 p.m.

Tanque Verde proved to be a tough opponent for Western starting with Alex Page’s two-run home run in the first inning over the center field fence that put his team ahead 3-2.

“It was way too close for comfort; it didn’t seem like we could stop them,” said Alday, who is the nephew and son of the late Rich and Sammy Alday, respectively.

Rich Alday is a former Pima Community College and New Mexico baseball coach, and Sammy Alday was a long-time educator in the Sunnyside Unified School District who coached Sunnyside’s softball program.

“It didn’t seem like we could stop them and get a 1-2-3 inning,” Brian Alday continued. “First game for us so a little jitters, guys not knowing where to be in certain situations. Defense, we threw the ball around a lot. Luckily, we were able to come back with our offense and score some runs.”

— Javier Morales (@JavierJMorales) June 26, 2022

Tanque Verde’s lead increased to 6-2 with a three-run second inning on an RBI double by Rudy Turkal and RBI singles by Gustavo Hurtado and Jareth Nyllind.

Western’s bats awoke in the third inning with a six-run rally to take an 8-6 lead.

Marcio Carpio’s two-run single ignited the rally. The catcher went 3 for 3 with four RBIs.

“I was just trying to hit the ball,” said Carpio, who split time this season at the Majors and Intermediate (50/70) levels.

In the back-and-forth affair, Tanque Verde scored two runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings.

Hurtado’s RBI single in the fifth put his team ahead 10-8.

Western put together its winning rally in the sixth with three runs.

— Javier Morales (@JavierJMorales) June 26, 2022

Jesus Valencia walked to lead off the inning, and with one out, Joseph Leyva was hit by a pitch. Xavier Silvas-Almazon followed with a deep fly to right field that bounced just before reaching the fence. Valenzuela and Leyva scored to tie the game at 10.

Carpio followed with the game-winning single, plating Silvas-Almazon, who went 2 for 3 with three runs and two RBIs.

“Personally, I thought it was going out but I wasn’t sure,” Silvas-Almazon said. “I watched it a little and started jogging, and that’s my mistake. Instead of just watching it, I should have run the entire time.”

Alday and his staff will take the triple, especially with Carpio the next batter. Silvas-Almazon and Carpio combined for five hits and six RBIs as the Nos. 3 and 4 batters, respectively.

“It makes me happy that I helped out the team,” Silvas-Almazon said. “If they would’ve had me bunt I would not be mad, either, because it’s the same thing. You’re still helping out your team. And it gives a team confidence a lot of times. It just keeps on building up.”

Aaron Lizarraga pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief to end the game. He retired the side in the top of the seventh to secure the win.

TUCSON (KVOA) -- It's Little League season in Southern Arizona.

The road to State is open and many teams are also dreaming of the opportunity to take a trip to Nationals for a chance to be crowned the best in the United States or in some cases the best in the world.

Six district titles were on the line Tuesday night, five in District 5 and one in District 12.

In District 5, Canyon View absolutely dominated the 8-10-year old division, crushing Oro Valley, Tanque Verde and Continental Ranch twice on the way to the title. CV out scored their opponents 88-12.

Canyon View also won the Minors Division title (9-11) beating Thornydale 11-4. The Minors also scored in double digits in all four of their district games.

In a possible trifecta Canyon View can win the Majors division baseball title Wednesday night after an 8-6 victory over Marana to force a winner-take-all IF (necessary) game.

First pitch on Wednesday night at Ora Mae Park No. 2 is 6:30.

In the Intermediate (50/70) division, Western beat Tanque Verde three times for the title.

On the softball side, Marana swept Thornydale for the District 5 Juniors championship. Marana won both games by scores of 12-11. Marana will represent the host district in the annual West Regional Tournament in late July. Thornydale will advance to the state tournament with a chance to make the regional if they can win on the state level.

Sunnyside rallied from the elimination bracket to win yet another Majors championship, avenging an early tournament 2-0 loss to Copper Hills and beating them in successive nights in the title game 6-5 and 8-3.

SAN XAVIER LITTLE LEAGUE SUSPENDED

San Xavier Little League was suspended this month from all divisions of the District 12 tournament by Little League International.

The Southwest Tucson organization was found to have 19 forged school waivers for players in the league.

District 12 administrator Cindy Snow declined to comment on the situation when reached by News 4 Tucson.

Little League International also declined to answer questions regarding the suspension but did issued this lengthy statement:

The Little League International Tournament Committee reviewed information pertaining to the eligibility of the San Xavier Little League. Upon review of the information supplied by the league and verified by school officials, the Tournament Committee determined that multiple players registered and accepted to participate by the league do not meet the eligibility requirements to participate in San Xavier Little League as outlined in Little League Official Regulations, Playing Rules, and Operating Policies, in which these players do not reside nor attend school within the approved boundaries.

Based on multiple violations over the course of the last two years and the habitual nature of the league allowing ineligible players to participate in the league, the Tournament Committee has deemed San Xavier Little League ineligible to participate in the International Tournament in all divisions for the 2022 season. The decision of the Little League International Tournament Committee is final and binding.

When asked to disclose minutes from the meeting in which the San Xavier violations were discussed, LLI stated:

It is Little League International’s policy not to disclose the details of any cases brought before the Little League International Tournament Committee.

Tony Diaz resigned as League president earlier this month.

He told News 4 Tucson he hoped his decision to step down would allow for the kids to have the opportunity to play in the all-star tournaments.

Letty Montero is now the acting president of San Xavier Little League. The suspension is expected to be for just the 2022 Little League summer cycle.

Here are all the district champions from the Little League Summer of 2022 in Southern Arizona:

Tanque Verde forced game three in the District 5 Intermediate championship series by beating Western 8-6 Monday night at the Arthur Pack Complex. Western beat Tanque Verde 11-10 Saturday to get the series going.

The champion at the 50/70 level will advance to the state tournament lasted to start July 11 in Nogales. Nogales National is hosting from District 8 and Sunnyside claimed the District 12 championship last week.

Tanque Verde built an 8-3 lead through six innings with Victor Corella picking up the win with four strikeouts and only two earned runs in six innings of work. He shutdown the Western offense in the top of the fifth after the team worked the bases full. In all, Western left 11 runners on base.

For Tanque Verde, James Dryden had an RBI single; Gustavo Hurtad had a single; Alexander Page had a double and Maximus Collins went 2-3.

The final game of the best-of-three series will be Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. at Arthur Pack.

Sunnyside beat Copper Hills 6-5 Monday night in Majors softball action held at the Field of Dreams Complex to force the “If Game” in that championship series.

Copper Hills beat Sunnyside 2-0 last Friday to send Sunnyside to the Elimination Bracket and Sunnyside beat Randolph 27-4 on Saturday to set up the rematch under the double-elimination format.

Copper Hills took a 5-3 lead in the top of the fifth inning but Sunnyside scored two runs, aided by an RBI from Ruby Luevanos, to tie the game up 5-5. Copper Hills stranded two runners in the top of the sixth and then Sulema Llanes reached on a walk to start the bottom half of the inning for Sunnyside.

Llanes moved to second base after a walk was issued to Amaya Godoy with one out and then a fielder’s choice moved her to third base where she scored the winning run on an infield error one batter later.

The winner of the Majors Division will advance to Verde Valley for state competition on July 8. Thornydale claimed the D-5 championship last week.

There are six possible championships scheduled for Tuesday night, including the two mentioned above.

Former Marana High School star D'Marco Dunn represents Tucson at Final Four

NEW ORLEANS — D’Marco Dunn adds some Tucson flavor to a Tar Heel State Final Four showdown.

“The West Coast and East Coast just have different styles of basketball,” Dunn said Friday, shortly before taking to the Caesars Superdome court for North Carolina’s open practice.

A reserve guard, Dunn is the westernmost product on the Tar Heels’ roster. He is a native and a Tucson native and former Marana High School student. Teammate Puff Johnson spent time at Phoenix’s Hillcrest Prep, though Johnson — the younger brother of Suns guard Cam Johnson — is actually a native of the Pittsburgh area.

Dunn made the move in the opposite direction, transferring east to Westover High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 2019. His was a family decision — his mom, Veronica Johnson, “got a better job,” he said — but it was in Fayetteville that Dunn’s game blossomed.

He averaged better than 20 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game for Westover in 2019-20. Ahead of his senior season, Dunn grew into a high four-star prospect and top-100-ranked recruit, per 247Sports.com.

As a high school senior, Dunn averaged 23.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. Dunn’s short time at Westover proved so transformative that the school retired his No. 3 jersey in a ceremony last November.

Even though the 19-year-old Dunn made his name in North Carolina, the Tar Heels guard credits Tucson for shaping his style of game.

“West Coast (basketball players) just (have) a little bit more swagger, the way they move, that whole vibe,” he said. “I took that with me the most.”

Dunn also brought to the East Coast experience from the Marana volleyball team.

A decidedly Western sport still at the high-school level, Dunn said he joined the Tigers; volleyball team to build his jumping ability. Westover didn’t sponsor the sport, but benefited all the same given how Dunn attacked the rim.

The dual-sport background in basketball and volleyball is reminiscent of some revered names in Tucson. Former Arizona Wildcats Jud Buechler and Chase Budinger both played on the beach and indoors as high-schoolers. But that was a long time ago: Dunn was a kindergartener when Budinger played wing for the Arizona basketball team.

Dunn, like most Tucson kids, grew up a fan of the Wildcats. UA even came calling on the recruiting trail. Then-coach Sean Miller offered Dunn a scholarship in May 2020.

“I had a lot of options, including Arizona, but I just felt Carolina was right for me,” he said, adding that the Tar Heels’ coaching staff emerged “later in the recruiting process.”

“I didn’t know until maybe a couple weeks before I committed,” he said of UNC’s interest. “I did a lot of research on the schools that I had (scholarship offers from), and I just felt Carolina was the best fit.”

Year 1 in Chapel Hill has primarily been a time for Dunn to learn. He has played 94 total minutes over 23 games, including NCAA Tournament wins over Marquette and Saint Peter’s, dishing an assist against the Golden Eagles and grabbing a rebound in the East Regional blowout of the Cinderella Peacocks.

Acclimating to the college game alongside UNC star Caleb Love is not a bad introduction, though.

“That’s my dog,” Dunn said of Love. “He’s shown me the ropes.”

Learning from the 15.7-points-per-game Love has been a perk for Dunn in his first college season. Another is reaching a Final Four.

Dunn will be suited up when the Tar Heels face rival Duke in Saturday’s national semifinal. UNC spoiled Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s regular-season home finale; a win Saturday would end the retiring coach’s career.

With UA bounced from the tournament and one of its own in the national semifinal, how much Carolina Blue is Dunn expecting to be donned in the Old Pueblo?

“Not too much,” he laughed. “But all my friends are supporting me personally and they’re glad to see me here.”
