Williamsport — The 13 year old Babe Ruth all-stars from Clearfield finished the District 8 tournament with a 2-2 record and a second place finish over the weekend in Williamsport.
After suffering a first round defeat to State College 4-1, the Clearfielders fought their way through the consy bracket to set up a finals match with host West End.
Unfortunately, West End was the end of the line for the Clearfielders. West End posted a 17-4 mercy rule win to claim the Distrcit 8 crown. Michael Swoope and Ryan Capitos each doubled in the game for Clearfield.
Clearfield now advances to the state tournament on July 20 through July 24. Clearfield does have the unenviable task of starting the round-robin portion of the tourney by facing host West End again.
