Over the June 9 and June 10 weekend, Stettler was host to a 46-team baseball tournament, with U18 girls winning gold.

Stettler U16 Team 1 won silver, while Stettler U10 Team 1 won bronze.

Although, U16 Team 1 placed first in round robin, they lost in the finals, 9-5, and placed second overall, winning silver.

“Right now, we are all gearing up for the provincials,” said U16 Team 1 Coach Sarah Tucker. “Our team will be playing on the Canada Day long weekend in the B provincials, while U16 Team 2 will be playing in the D event.”

U14 is heading to Irma in mid-July to compete in the C division, while U18 girls are heading to provincials at the same time there to compete in the B division.

Stettler will be hosting another tournament, the U12 C and D events, from July 6-8.
