The main event at last week’s (Sept. 5) Board of Selectmen meeting was a ceremonial one that drew a large crowd into the second floor auditorium. Parents, family members and friends of the Saugus U12 Little League Softball All-Stars turned out at the beginning of the meeting to watch selectmen honor the 13 team members for winning the U12 District 16 Little League Softball Championship.

Stephanie Strout, assistant league director of Saugus U12 Little League Softball, said it was the first time in the league’s history that an all-star team won a district championship. The team went 4-1 to take the district title and then finished 2-2 to finish in third place in the Massachusetts State Championship Tournament.

The team consists of softball players who were 12 or under by Jan. 1. They included Teaghan Arsenault, Ava Caron, Aubrey Demonte, Layla Demonte, Angelina Dow, Alannah Duong, Sofia McCarrier, Jenna O’Donnell, Rose Pietrzak, Mia Shawdee, Hanna Strout, Julia Strout and Mia Ward. Chris McCarrier managed the all-star team, and the coaches were Natalie O’Donnell and Peter Donoghue. Marissa Demonte is the league director.

Each of the players received a citation signed by all five selectmen and posed for a photo with the members. After the ceremony, the girl posed for a photo outside on the steps of Saugus Town Hall to cap what league officials consider a memorable year.

The Saugus all-stars competed against teams from Lynn, Peabody, Salem and Winthrop in capturing the district title.
