The Boys Under 14 Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks all-star team were a finalist in the 2012 Scripps Ranch All-Star tournament on Dec. 16. The team had an amazing December by going to the finals in all three tournaments they entered and winning two. The Sharks got to the finals last weekend by coming back from a 2-0 deficit to beat Scripps Ranch 4-3.

“Even when they lost the final game, they came off the field smiling,” said Coach Bob Shopes. “They played their best, never gave up, supported each other as teammates and had more fun than any team out there. You can’t hope for any better from youth sports than that.”
