This includes on the female side: Independence High School, Belize Rural High School and Alvin Young Nazarene High School. On the male side we had: Belmopan Comprehensive High School, Independence High School and San Pedro High School.

On the road to the finals Independence High School Males appeared the certain favourites as they crushed Belmopan Comprehensive 18 – 1. While the Gwen Liz girls looked to be the strong contenders after defeating Belize Rural High School easily, 6 – 2. Independence female team and Nazarene males got into the finals with close victories 12 – 10 and 5 – 3 respectively.

In the finals it was all about pitching. The Gwen Liz pitcher and tournament MVP Ashley Lucas, shutout the Independence High School Females in a dominant display as Gwen Liz won 2 – 0. While on the male side, it was MVP Jerome Carr from Nazarene who put in work on both defence, with great pitching and offense, with key hits as he helped his team to a 3 – 0 win over Independence Males to claim the championship.
