Midget Tigers win silver in baseball provincial

The South Okanagan Midget Tigers baseball team finished the provincials with a second-place finish.

The South Okanagan Midget Tigers baseball team finished the provincials with a second-place finish. The tournament was held in Chilliwack earlier this month.

Coach Junior Deleon said the teams in the tournament were strong.

Going into the provincials, the Tigers had 13 wins and 27 losses, while the first-place Cloverdale Spurs had 37 wins and three losses.

Deleon said the Okanagan team members worked hard throughout the tournament.

“The boys had been playing hard going into the provincials,” he said. “They played really hard and they continued very strong until the end.”

The Tigers won their first game against Victoria. The next game, against Cloverdale, resulted in a 4-2 loss.

Chilliwack then defeated the Tigers 7-0, but the team advanced to the semifinals based on the overall points standings, Deleon said.

The Tigers then came back to defeat Vancouver 4-2, but lost to Cloverdale 11-2 in the finals.

Players are from around the South Okanagan. Tyler Lemke is the only Summerlander on the team this year.
