Beaufort’s all-stars competed in the Dixie Youth Baseball O-Zone (11-12) district tournament over the weekend at The Crossings Park on Hilton Head Island. 

Beaufort dropped its opener 15-0 to eventual champion Hilton Head on Friday and lost a tough 3-2 matchup with Bluffton in an elimination game Saturday. 

The Beaufort all-stars couldn’t get anything going against a strong Hilton Head pitching staff that did not allow a single run in three games en route to the district title. 

Bluffton eliminated Beaufort with a hard-fought 3-2 win in a pitching duel marked by outstanding defense from both teams. Cam Howard went the distance on the mound for Beaufort. 

Beaufort’s all-star teams are competing in the AA Coach Pitch (7-8) tournament in Walterboro and the Minors (9-10) tournament in Bluffton this week.
