100 Mile-N-Hour bats to silver in Kamloops

U12 fastball team sees success in first tournament of year

Fastball season has officially started and the 100 Mile-N-Hour U12 team travelled to Kamloops for their first tournament on Mother’s Day weekend.

The first game was played against the Merritt Cougars and after the first game jitters were worked out, the team managed to win the game 20-4.

Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the game went to first baseman Tucker Gust.

The second game was against Barriere Stamer Logging and the team caught fire.

The team meshed together, beating Barriere 18-3 with some home run hits by Elias Moore and Cameron Scott.

MVP of the game went to second baseman Sean Moore.

Game three was against the Clearwater Stingers, who proved to be a bit of a challenge as Clearwater’s faster pitcher made it difficult to score runs.

Clearwater took the game, winning 14-7 with MVP going to pitcher Cameron Scott.

100 Mile took second place in the round robin, leaving them to play Barriere in game four.

Again dominating with their batting as well as their fielding skills, the game ended in a win of 20-6 for the 100 Mile squirts, meaning the team would progres to play for first or second in their division.

The championship game saw 100 Mile face up against Clearwater yet again.

Despite their efforts, the team was unable to best Clearwater and the game ended with a score of 13-9.

The 100 Mile-N-Hour players ended with a not-too-shabby silver medal finish.

Team manager, Gwen Scott, says that the coaches were extremely happy with the team and have a good idea what needs to be worked on for next time.

“We are hoping to play some more games against Clearwater and some games with Williams Lake. Our goal this year is to attend Provincial Championships hosted by Prince George in July and to just have a great season of ball, developing the kids.”
