Following their victory at the Softball Fast Pitch AA Provincial Championship in July, the ladies of the Lac St-Louis Lions AA U16 went to O’Leary, Prince Edward Island to represent their province at the Eastern Canadian Softball Championships which was held from August 24 to 27. Twelve teams from Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, and Newfoundland all made the trip to beautiful sunny PEI.
With a record of five wins and two losses, the Lac St-Louis Lions AA U16 made it to the finals on Sunday and played against the Kawurtha, Ontario Lakers where they were defeated 9-4 but still proudly came home with the silver medal. What an accomplishment for these girls and what a thrill for the parents to live this beautiful dream with their favorite players. Olivia MacDonald was named the tournament top pitcher.
