The Hastings All-Stars won the provincial 9/10-year-old Little League championship last weekend with all the players but one being from Burnaby.

Hastings, with 11 of 12 players residents of North Burnaby, downed Highlands of North Vancouver 17-6 in Saturday's final held in Trail.

Loreto Siniscalchi allowed two earned runs while striking out four in 3 2/3 innings to get the win. Siniscalchi and Nicola Barba hit back-to-back doubles to highlight a seven-run sixth inning for Hastings, which went undefeated in seven games in Trail.

All three of the team's coaches are Burnaby residents while the 12th player used to live in Burnaby.

Hastings will be the hosts for the 2016 Canadian Little League championship for 11/12 year olds with the winner advancing to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn.
