TRACY — Spreckels Park is going to need to get a bigger flag pole.
Spreckels Park’s 6-3 win over Northgate on Monday at Monticello School makes the second consecutive year that Spreckels Park has won the District 67 Junior All-Star Tournament.
“This is awesome,” Spreckels Park coach Jason Cook said. “This feels just as awesome as the last one did.
