NEW LITTLE LEAGUE RULE ALLOWS THOSE ATTENDING SCHOOL IN SNLL BOUNDARIES TO PLAY IN SNLL!!!
In an effort to accommodate for Little Leaguers to play with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2014.
"Little League is always looking for more ways to give all children the opportunity to have the best Little League experience possible," said Patrick Wilson, Little League Senior Vice President of Operations and Program Development. "This new rule will provide more flexibility for families to participate in the leagues that best fits their children."
If your child attends any of the following schools in SNLL boundaries, he/she can play in SNLL without any special waiver and will be eligible for All Star consideration:
William Lummis Elementary School
Ethel Staton Elementary School
John W. Bonner Elementary School
Richard Bryan Elementary School
Ernest Becker Middle School
Sig Rogich Middle School
Palo Verde High School
Adelson Educational Campus
The Meadows School
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

SNLL 50/70 ALL STAR TEAM WINS FIRST EVER DISTRICT 4 INTERMEDIATE DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP!!
The Summerlin North Little League 50/70 All Star Team will battle the Carson City Little League All Stars in a best-of-three series July 12-14 in Carson City, Nevada to determine the 50/70 Division state champion. Carson City Little League, the defending 50/70 Division state champion, defeated Sparks Centennial Little League for the District 2 Championship late last month. Summerlin North Little League defeated Red Rock Little League for the District 4 Championship and will be SNLL's only team competing for a state title this year in Carson City.
"This is real baseball," spectators often observe when they watch 50/70 games in action. Lead offs, pick off moves, a larger field allowing for more strategic game play... these all combine to produce an exciting, often high-scoring brand of baseball that rewards good fundamentals and powerful bats. SNLL players range from League Age 11 to League Age 13.
The SNLL Pirates - from which the SNLL 50/70 All-Stars were selected - went 13-1-1 in regular season play, piling up 186 runs and allowing just 59. The team hit .389 for the season and thumped 28 extra base hits. As a team, the Pirates stole 97 bases and were caught stealing only 3 times.
The SNLL 50/70 All Stars competed in an epic nine-inning, four hour battle with the Red Rock All Star Team in the first game of the District 4 50/70 Division tournament, ultimately winning 14-13 in a game that will long be known as “The Night the Lights Went Out in Summerlin” after a dramatic power outage in extra innings temporarily halted play. The SNLL All Stars went on to pitch a combined no-hitter to defeat the Western All Stars 17-1 in the second game of the playoffs. The team ultimately won the District 4 Championship Game 26-14 in a rematch with the Red Rock All Star Team, in a back-and-forth game that featured six lead changes and a remarkable 15-run fifth inning that broke the game wide open for SNLL.
The winner of the 50/70 Division state championship won't have any time to rest on their laurels. Just three days after the end of the state tournament, the Little League World Series West Regional Tournament gets underway in Nogales, Arizona. Ten teams from the western states - from as far away as Hawaii and Washington - will convene in Nogales for four pool play games, followed by a single elimination playoff. The West Regional Champion then heads to Livermore, California for the Little League 50/70 World Series in early August.
Good luck to Reece Ashcraft, Brandon Ashe, Nick Brahms, Will Byerman, Eli Duncan, Jacob Gutierrez, Jackson Hall, Derek Krohn, Lucas Laurita, Dominik Riezler and Shane Taylor, as well as manager Russell Taylor and coaches Robert Ashcraft, David Byerman, and John Laurita. A great group of ballplayers whose hard work and determination have made Summerlin North Little League proud!
Summerlin North Little League Red Sox win Minor Division Tournament of Champions
Congratulations to the AAA Red Sox Champions of the District Four Tournament of Champions and first-ever TOC banner for Summerlin North Little League.
After securing both the regular season and SNLL tournament championship, the team had momentum riding on its side. In the first game of tournament, the team drew the Lone Mountain Giants. From the start, it was a pitchers dual. However, in the end, the Red Sox prevailed and took Game #1 4-3.
Game #2 the Sox had their work cut out for them having to face the first-place Braves from district powerhouse Mountain Ridge. After multiple lead changes and an exciting game, the team made some key defensive plays to end the game with an 8-7 victory. The team would face inter-league partner the Western Mudhens in the semi-final game.
Against the Hens, Jackson Tanko took the mound, never left and completed the game. Tanko had four strikeouts, gave up only two runs and three hits. The offense was lead by Shea Keyes with a two hit, four RBI game. The Red Sox cruised to a 12-2 victory while earning a spot in the championship game.
The championship was a picture perfect setting as the Red Sox faced the Western Stars. Earlier in the season, the Stars gave the Red Sox their only loss, so it was fitting that these two teams would face each other in this game. After the Red Sox took an early 5-0 lead, the Stars put together several strong innings to get back into the game. The teams found themselves in a 8-8 tie. During the top of the fourth, Red Sox pitcher Shea Keyes was struck by a ball and had to leave the game. Thankfully, he's doing well. In relief of his fallen teammate, Chris Frankot came in and closed out the inning with no runs. In honor of Shea, the team put together a championship inning; scoring five to secure the championship. The team had season high 18 hits for the game. Andrew Ayson lead the team with two hits and four RBIs.
The Red Sox end the season with a 25-1 record, SNLL regular / tournament winners and champions of District 4.
Team: Andrew Ayson, Alex Minkoff, Paisley Nickelson, Brantley Lytle, Shea Keyes, Davis Whetten, Jackson Tanko, Chris Frankot, Corey Burkhead, Bryson Mariano, Jacob Hanratty, Davis Whetten. The Manager is Joe Ayson. Coaches are Bob Keyes, Sean Tanko, Kevin Hanratty, Josh Whetten, Ken Lytle.
Thanks to our sponsors: the Hanratty Law Group, Turf Sporting Goods, Coach Manny Abeyta, Caroline Byerman and Summerlin North Little League for their support this season.
SNLL 9/10 All Stars make tournament championship for the first time in 11 years
After one of the most exciting championship games on Monday night, the North All Stars forced a second championship game Tuesday against the talented Mountain Ridge team. This would be the third meeting between these teams in four days of tournament play at Children's Memorial Park. The night before, with the North down 2-8, the team put together an incredible 11-run third inning and closed the game with a 16-12 victory.
During the first two innings of Tuesday's game, North pitchers did their jobs keeping the Ridge's batters at bay holding them to one run. Karthic Gondy started for the North. Gondy's combination of pin point fastballs and off speed change-ups kept Mountain Ridge aggressive hitters guessing. However, in the third inning, fatigue from hot temperatures and a week-long tournament began to set-in as the SNLL gave up eight runs in the third. Although SNLL would load the bases twice and out hit their opponent, they were only able to score one run in the sixth. Mountain Ridge added a few more runs to take game three and the District 4 9/10 championship by the score of 14-8.
Considering SNLL is the third of the size of Mountain Ridge, the SNLL 9/10 All Stars had a remarkable run. Many of the North's All Stars have played in the league since t-ball. Their competitive spirit was the envy of the tournament and their performance was one of the best in recent years. With a couple more years left ahead, the future looks bright for these All Stars.
Team members include: Andrew Ayson, Kade DeSantis, Chris Frankot, Shea Keyes, Karthic Gondy, Bronson Mariano, Alyssa Maillaro, Paisley Nickelson, Jake Paszek, Colin Smith, Jackson Tanko, Davis Whetten, Ozzy Zawislak
The coaches are: Chris Trenton, Manny Abeyta, Rob Zawislak. The team was managed by Joe Ayson
