After going undefeated on their way to a Cal Ripken state title, the Carbon 10-year-old All Stars ran into strong competition and sweltering heat in Visalia, California.

Carbon play in the Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament began on July 22 as the 10-year-olds faced Elk Grove. Carbon hit the ball well during the tournament's opening round but ran into tough defense as Elk Grove shut out the Utah squad 10-0. Austin Emerson and Cooper Schade logged hits, with Jordan Fossat pitching the game's first two innings. Dillion Thomas took the mound in the third inning and wrapped up the contest.

After a Nevada team dropped out of regional play, Carbon once again faced a California squad, Central Bullard. Carbon Blue started strong, scoring three runs in the first inning on a Cooper Schade double. Their streak cooled quickly, however as the kids would not score again until the fourth. The final tally saw Carbon go down 16-6. Cayden Steele had two hits on the afternoon with Fossat, Jered Davies and Emerson logging a base knock of their own.

The local kids faced Guam in their third contest of the tournament and nearly pulled off a win. The game was close until mental errors saw Carbon give up six runs in the third. Emerson had a pair of singles on the afternoon to go along with a triple. Fossat logged a double as did Brayton Nielsen. Davies, and Chase Magann both had singles during the game.

Carbon finished against Buchanan the tournament's number one seed. After four days of physical play and constant heat, the local kids struggled, going down 21-0. Despite the score, Carbon played great defense in spurts with big plays from Levi Schade, Ryker Childs and Steele.

"It was such a positive experience and a privilege to represent Utah," said Carbon Blue Scorekeeper Nicole Steele. "It was an experience they will never forget and competing against kids from the west coast and Guam is something they can remember for the rest of their lives."
