Stettler’s Grace McMullin hits the ball square in their game against Delburne on Thursday

Stettler U10 girls and U14 Savages win

Stettler's U14 girls' softball team Savages maintained their winning streak after initial setbacks in the season by beating Trochu 18-8.

Stettler’s U14 girls’ softball team Savages maintained their winning streak after initial setbacks in the season by beating Trochu 18-8 in a game dominated by great pitching and play, on Wednesday, May 25.

“The girls played a very complete game and everyone’s contributing now,” said assistant coach Kevin Shuckburgh.

“Madison McCrindle, Hannah Elines and Brooke Mulgrove teamed up to pitch a great game as Brooke Laiznes and Alandra Couch played awesome behind the plate,” he added. “The whole crew was hot with their bats and they continue to put the ball in play versus focusing on being walked.”

According to Shuckburgh, the intensity and pace has increased with every game played and that could be seen by many of the girls avoiding outs by sliding hard into the bases.

Stettler U10 girls beat Delburne 5-3

Although Stettler U10 girls have many of the players taking up the sport for the first time, they played a great game against Delburne to beat them 5-3 on Thursday, May 26.

“The girls are really starting to get the fundamentals of fastball, respect for each other and their opponents,” said coach Clint Greiner. “We are really just trying to work on the basics right know hitting, pitching and positions on the field and getting ready for our tournament this Saturday.”

Stettler will be hosting the home ball tournament in the coming weekend, and with some great weather forecast already in the books, all the teams are preparing for their games.
