The team started the season off strong, winning a season-opening tournament in Olds.

The U16 A Stettler Storm team played in a season-opening tournament in Olds this past weekend, coming away with gold by beating Lloydminster on Sunday, May 7 in the final, 21-20.

Their first game was against Olds on Saturday, May 6, which they lost 18-14.

“The girls were very strong at bats with Madison Tucker hitting a home run in one inning and a grand slam home run in another,” Sarah McCrindle, one of the assistant coaches said.
