Peewee B girls fastball team take loss at Provincials

Local players in good spirits despite being eliminated from Provincials after Round Robin games

Despite great efforts, the Sooke Peewee B girls fastball team were knocked out of Provincials after the preliminary round.

The Sooke Mavericks were in Maple Ridge from July 13-14 to compete in the Provincials, which saw 16 teams participate.

“We played the Round Robin, and we never advanced, we lost all four games,” said parent and former coach, Tammi Dimock.

“We fought off a good battle, and we had some amazing moments.”

Although the girls didn’t come home victorious, their trek to the Lower Mainland was not for naught.

Dimock said the girls demonstrated good sportsmanship and took their losses in stride.

“They had some good times and good laughs,” she said, adding travelling as a team is always good experience.

The girls won a berth into the Provincials, after earning second place at their districts.

“They’re a really good group of girls, and it was a good season,” she said.
