Under-10 Bears finish softball year with ‘a good learning experience’

The under-10 Stettler Bears finished off their softball season with a win and a loss.

The under-10 Stettler Bears finished off their softball season with a win and a loss.

They won 10-2 in Delburne. Hanna Elines, Brooke Laisnez, Emmalee Paschke and Donna Broemeling each had three hits as the Stettler players jumped out to an early lead. The team got a strong pitching performance from Kirsten Bish, who was making her first start of the year. Bish pitched two innings of no-hit ball before Brooke Laisnez took over for the final two innings.

“It was probably our most complete game of the year, both offensively and defensively,” said coach Shauna Elines.

Stettler later hosted a strong Clive team and lost 9-3.

“We just seemed to start slowly and it cost us — once the players realized they could play with Clive, they tried to claw back and we finished strong,” said coach Kevin Shuckburgh.

Alycia Petersen played well in the field and had two hits and scored one of the Bears’ runs. Faith Shuckburgh made a highlight-reel catch at first on a pop fly — she tried for the double play but the Clive player was able to scramble back to the bag.

The loss was a disappointing end to the season, but it was a good learning experience, as Clive is competing in the provincials.

The Bears were made up of Kirsten Bish, Cassidy Braun, Donna Broemeling, Alandra Couch, Hannah Elines, Alyssa Koch, Brooke Laisnez, Emmalle Paschke, Alycia Petersen and Faith Shuckburgh. The Stettler coaches were Shauna Elines, Kevin Shuckburgh and Bob Couch.
