Three Stettler-flavoured teams are bound for provincial baseball championships.
This weekend at Red Deer, Stettler competes in the mosquito A Tier 3 championship. Coronation is also among the six teams in that tournament, which runs Friday through Sunday’s 7 p.m. final.
Next weekend, July 26-28, the Stettler Vipers head to Okotoks for the bantam AA Tier 2 championship.
Also on the July 26-28 weekend, the Lacombe Dodgers host the midget AA Tier 1 championship at Lacombe and Clive. Lacombe’s roster includes Stettler natives Riley Anderson, Jordan McCallum and Stephen Zuk.
This past weekend, the Dodgers reached the final of the Kelowna, B.C. tournament before losing 12-7 to Prince George. Lacombe posted a 3-1 record in round-robin play, beating Surrey 10-1, losing 10-4 to Prince George, dumping North Delta 10-4 and blanking host Kelowna 10-0.
The Dodgers were tentatively scheduled to face Lloydminster this Saturday in an exhibition doubleheader at Stettler.
