Congratulations to the entire team for an incredibly strong, consistent day by all members of the U12A Softball team. We faced little challenge through to the finals, outscoring our opponents 40-5. The final game against Crescent was a great challenge for both teams who had matched up well throughout the season. We knew they pitched differently from other teams, and spent our morning break preparing for their game. We went out to an early lead, and then fell back a little later. We showed our resilience and stormed back to win the game 14-8.
This was a great season for the team, with a final record of 9 wins and 1 tie. After revamping our hitting mid-season, there were no weak spots in the lineup where the opponents could relax. The defence also became more consistent as the season progressed. We made great throwing and tagging plays more regularly as the season progressed, including a few key ones in the final game.
Special thanks to Eric, who although injured much of the season came out to support his teammates throughout the season. And to Ollie, who also injured took over all of the first base coaching and did a remarkable job throughout the entire CISAA finals with only one day preparation. A special thank you to Janis Rivett for assisting as the Team Parent during the season and taking all of the photographs. Thanks also go out to the parents, siblings, grandparents and dogs who came out to cheer for the team.
