Two South Tahoe Little League All-Star teams have advanced to the elimination rounds of district tournaments in Sparks.

South Tahoe’s Renegades have compiled a 2-2 record after a 15-3 victory of Reno National on Monday night at Shadow Mountain Park. The win propelled South Tahoe into Tuesday night’s quarterfinals against Washoe at Golden Eagle Park.

The South Tahoe Hooligans All-Star club has also qualified for Tuesday’s quarterfinals. The Hooligans beat Sparks Centennial on Monday night to make the final eight.

They were scheduled to meet Washoe on Tuesday night at Shadow Mountain Park.

In the Renegades rout of Reno National on Monday, Chris Pfister went 3 for 3, including a double, and two runs scored and Bryin Schouten was 2 for 2 with four runs scored.

Starting pitcher Denver Orr struck out five Reno hitters in 2 2/3 innings. Reliever Alex Kasper fanned two while throwing 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

Other hitting stars for the Renegades were Kevin Lehmann, 2 for 3 with two runs scored; Lucas Demsar, 2 for 2; Kody Griffis, 2 for 2 with a double and two runs scored; and Orr, two runs scored.

Previously in pool play, the Renegades lost to Reno Centennial 8-7, pounded Reno American 19-9 and were on the short end of a 3-1 score against Sparks Centennial.

Both the Hooligan and Renegades’ tournaments continue through Thursday. Winning teams on Tuesday night are guaranteed two more games.

Renegades tournament semifinals are at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and finals at 8 p.m. Thursday at Shadow Mountain Park. Hooligan tournament semifinals are scheduled for 8 p.m. Wednesday and finals at 8 p.m. Thursday at Shadow Mountain Park.

Three additional South Tahoe All-Star teams – the 11-12s, the 10-11s and 9-10s – will begin tournament play July 7 at Governor’s Field in Carson City.
