For once I would like to see a San Gabriel Valley Little League team advance to the World Series. La Verne went on to defeat Hacienda Heights 3-1 in a Little League Section 3 championship-round game at Highlander Field on Tuesday. La Verne’s win forces a deciding rematch with Hacienda Heights at 6:30 tonight at Highlander Field. The winner will advance to the Southern California Divisional Tournament’s North Bracket, which starts play Saturday at Encino. I was hoping my hometown team West Covina National would advance, but they got eliminated by La Verne, so La Verne and Hacienda Heights are our last chance to reach Williamsport. Can anyone tell me the furthest an SGV team has gone?
