A 12-year-old Nelson boy has wrapped up a month with the Trail All-Stars with a trip to the BC Little League Major Championship in Victoria.

Nic Hume was the only Nelsonite on the team that went 10-5 during exhibition play in July against teams from Montana, Idaho, and Washington state.

At the provincials, he hit .364 (4-for-11) in six games, including a home run and a double. He also scored three runs and batted in three others.

The All Stars won their first two games by scores of 9-0 and 7-1, then dropped their next two 3-2 and 6-3. They needed Lynn Valley to beat Layritz Friday morning and to triumph themselves over Langley to have a chance at the playoffs.

Lynn Valley almost obliged Trail, taking Layritz into extra innings of a 0-0 game before bowing out 2-1 in 12 innings, but the All-Stars dropped a blowout to eventual provincial champion Langley. Trail finished fifth.
