The Alpine 9-10 all-star team continued its hot hitting, opening the Section 3 tournament with an 11-0 victory over Castro Valley on Saturday at Hillsborough's Majors Field at the school district offices.

After outscoring opponents by a 51-2 margin, recording four shutouts, Alpine was at it again.

Unfortunately, District 57 champion Canyon Creek edged Alpine 9-8 in Sunday's winner's bracket, forcing Alpine into the loser's bracket, where they will play Castro Valley on Monday.

Should Alpine beat Castro Valley again, it would still need to beat Canyon Creek twice to advance to the state tournament. Those games would be played Tuesday and Wednesday in Hillsborough at 5:30 p.m.
