Banks team captures Washington County crown

The Banks Senior American baseball team recently capped a nearly flawless season, culminating with a Washington County league championship and a berth in the state tournament.

Banks finished the season with an incredible 19-1 record, blasting opponents to run away with the county title. The league championship qualifies Banks for the upcoming Junior Baseball of Oregon (JBO) State Tournament, which begins on Thursday in Hillsboro.

Banks will be the top seed from Washington County and the third seed overall for the tournament. The Braves have a first-round bye and will play the winner of Thursday's game between Westview and West Linn.
