The mix of stiff competition and stifling heat was too much for the Los Altos & Los Altos Hills Little League’s 10-11 All-Stars to overcome at last week’s Northern California State Championships.

The team lost both its games at the tournament in Anderson (a suburb of Redding in Shasta County), where temperatures hit triple digits each day.

It's been a big year for Little League
