Blaze Win Gold

On Saturday, August 4th the North Bay Novice Girls Select Fast Pitch team traveled to Whitby to compete in their second tournament of the season. In scorching heat, our girls met the U-14 teams from Forest Glades (Windsor), Barrie(Red), Mallory Town and Whitby (white). They faced some strong competition in the field from all of these and maintained their composure, stamina and energetic spirit. With two wins and a loss in round robin play, our Blaze earned a spot in the championship game at 7:00pm against the host team Whitby White. With a narrow win of 3-2 in this final game the North Bay Blaze were elated to bring home the gold medals. Congratulations.

Midget Select team wins BRONZE in Unionville

The Midget Select team brought home a bronze medal from the Unionville tournament July 14th.  A great effort playing back to back games all day.  Losing a player to injury in the middle of the first game had the remaining 9 players busy for the remaining games, alternating positions when necessary.  Special thanks to Katie Sawyer for coming with the team to catch all day!
