The U14C Blue Sox girls were all smiles following their win of the day.

Sooke U14C Blue Sox beat the odds again

Despite many challenges, the ol' Blue Sox gals have done it again.

The girls arrived in Coquitlam at the provincial championship with fierce determination in their eyes.

A total of 16 teams from across the province were there all battling for the gold medal.

Our hometown comeback kids had a great start to the championships winning their first three games, and after three days, six games all in 30 degree-plus weather.

The Blue Sox advanced to the final round and placed seventh overall in the province. Hard to believe that a month ago this rookie team was at the bottom of their league.

What an amazing story of determination, hard work and talent.

Congratulations girls!
