 The Goleta Valley South Little League 12-under All Stars capped an impressive performance in the District 63 Tournament, smacking three home runs and getting outstanding pitching from Owen Estabrook to beat Fillmore 10-0 in the championship game on Sunday at the GVSLL complex.

The game, which was stopped after four innings because of the 10-run mercy rule, was rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday because of the Holiday Fire in Goleta.

Estabrook struck out 11 in four innings, allowing just one hit and no walks. He also contributed on offense, hitting a solo home run in the first inning.

Mason Pettingill hit a two-run homer during a six-run second inning and Ryan Ewart blasted a three-run homer in the fourth.

Diego Reyes hit a two-run double in the second inning, Braden Becchio had a run-scoring sacrifice fly and an infield error on a hard-hit grounder by Alvaro Contreras brought in a run in the inning.

Abel Renteria, Ewart and Estabrook each had two hits for Goleta Valley South, which outscored its opponents 33-2 in the tournament.

The District 63 champions advance to the Section 1 Tournament at Lompoc Little League on Saturday.

The members of the GVSLL 12U team are: Diego Reyes, Ian Burnett, Braden Becchio, Lance Anderson, Dane Dawson, Jaden Freking, Abel Renteria, Bracken Fleming, Alvaro Contreras, Owen Estabrook, Ryan Ewart, Mason Pettingill and Logan Stevenson.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
