Stettler’s under-12 girls’ softball team came home from a weekend tournament in Lacombe with a silver medal in the B division, one step up from the club’s C classification.

Stettler played five games, including an 18-10 loss to Lacombe in the gold medal game.

“The highlight of the tournament was definitely when we beat the higher seeded Red Deer team 16-9 to get to the final game,” said Stettler coach Sheri Morbeck.

“In league play, these girls are split between Stettler’s two under-12 teams. They have joined together for a provincial team, and together will play one more tournament and a few exhibition games in preparation for provincials in July.”

Stettler’s winners of Heart and Hustle awards during the tournament were Mikayla Torgerson, Gracie Morbeck, Jaiden Stotz, Rachel Morbeck and Megan Kobi.

Stettler’s weekend roster consisted of Rachel Morbeck, Gracie Morbeck, Jaiden Stotz, Kayla Myshaniuk, Mikayla Torgerson, Megan Kobi, Taylor Carey, Jenny Munholland, Rebecca Bridge and Elli Anderson.

“Unfortunately, Elli sprained her ankle sliding into home plate, and was unable to play on Sunday, but she kept the bench alive with her contagious cheering,” said Sheri Morbeck, who coaches the team along with Troy Anderson.
