Federal Little League's postseason run has brought back some great memories from my youth. I was part of the National Little League All-Star team in 1982 (back when there was only one all-star team per league and only one tournament). If I may say so (and I will), we had a heck of a team. It was the first year Little League tournaments went to double-elimination format. We didn't need it to win the district title, beating Halfway, Conococheague and Oakland twice. We were grateful for double elimination in the sectional tournament after blowing a lead and losing to Northeast in the winners' bracket final.

Four years ago, when Sarah Dice and Amanda Jenkins first teamed up as freshmen in girls doubles for Clear Spring, it would have been unfathomable to think they would end their careers with a third-place finish at the state tournament. "Back then, it was just something fun," Jenkins said. "I had volleyball, she had soccer and tennis was just for fun. We went to counties and lost our first match, but we were just thrilled to be there. " "When we first started our freshman year, we had no tennis experience at all," Dice said.
