The Issaquah/Sammamish all-star team got off to a promising start in the District 9 Little League Tournament for 10- to 11-year-olds, but it couldn’t maintain the momentum as the club was eliminated in three games.

In the opening round game July 2, Issaquah/Sammamish pounded Kirkland, 11-1, at North Bend’s Torguson Park.

Winning pitcher Natalie King had six strikeouts. Kendall Kauzlarich had three hits to lead Issaquah/Sammamish. Taylor Juenke and Shayna Swanson each had two hits.

On July 5, Issaquah/Sammamish dropped a tough, 11-9, decision to an all-star team composed of players from Bellevue West, Bellevue Thunderbird and Mercer Island. Emily Holderness led Issaquah/Sammamish with three hits. Juenke, Swanson, King and Athena Benjamin each had two hits.

On July 7, Issaquah/Sammamish again came up short when it lost to Snoqualmie Valley/Snoqualmie North, 7-6. Juenke had three hits and Swanson two hits. Snoqualmie Valley/Snoqualmie North eventually won the district title.
