Cotulla’s minor boys and junior girls all-stars won the District 21 titles in their respective division tournaments in Pleasanton Monday night.

The Frio County all-stars put up the most runs in the event against Cotulla but fell in another rout 13-3.

In a rematch in the title game, Cotulla took on Pleasanton, who made their way back into the title game via four wins in the loser’s bracket, and won a narrow 4-1 decision.

Pleasanton knocked off Pearsall 5-1 for the right to return to the title game on Monday night.
