Stettler U14 softball team headed for provincials to Irma

Despite a mixed-bag season, the U14 girls will pursue their provincial dream.

The Stettler U14 girls have been fighting hard to get their game on track, and although for most part they have it figured, it was a tough one against Trochu on Wednesday, July 5.

Even though there were some good pitches and hard hits thrown in for good measure, Trochu came out on the top, inflicting another blow to the team.

The girls have another game in Lacombe before they head out to Irma next weekend for the provincials.

“Although it wasn’t the outcome we were hoping for, the girls had many positive things come out of the game,” said Coach Marsha Mailer. “It has also made us aware of a few areas that we will have to work on this week before provincials.”

The team and the coaching staff are holding on to their strengths and will be building back up from that when they play in the provincials.

“We have one game and one practice left before heading to Irma, and I have no doubts that we will be ready to play our game there,” Mailer added.
