Summerland hosts softball tournament

Summerland Girls Softball hosted the first tournament of the season at Dale Meadows Complex on May 4 and 5.

Summerland Girls Softball hosted the first tournament of the season at Dale Meadows Complex on May 4 and 5.

A total of 17 U16 and U12 teams from around the province attended.

The teams started Saturday at 8 a.m. with all five fields at Dale Meadows in use.

The teams had wonderful weather and good competition.

As Summerland does not have a U16 or U12 team this season, this was mainly a fundraiser for softball.

The four U16 teams which advanced to the playoffs were Kelowna Homers, West Kootenay Rockers, Kelowna Hollers, and Mission Elite.

The Kelowna Homers, featuring Hannah Wright of Summerland, defeated the Hollers while West Kootenay defeated Mission to advance.

The final was a very hard fought game with West Kootenay winning in five innings 2-1.

The U12 teams advancing were Trail Steelers, Port Coquitlam 04s, Kelowna Ice Breakers, and Port Coquitlam 03s.

The semi finals were not as close as the U16 teams but Port Coquitlam 04s lost to Trail 17-6 while the Port Coquitlam 03s defeated Kelowna 15-4.

The final was good after five innings when Trail defeated Port Coquitlam 8-7.

This weekend, Summerland will host U19 and U14 teams.

Summerland teams coached by Joe Cutt, Tom Nelson and Dave Martin will be playing.
