The Pilot Butte weekend was a success, and we had some great talent out with the intention to make one of our 222’s Fastpitch Winter Teams. The fabulous weather definitely brought out the best in the kids.

With one successful camp under our belts, that leaves kids with one last opportunity to try out for one of our Winter Teams. The Melfort Try-out camp takes place this upcoming weekend, August 27th and 28th at Melfort’s Spruce Haven Ball Park. If you have not yet registered, and would like an opportunity to make one of these teams, head to https://222sfastpitch.com/camps-and-clinics-2015/ to register now.

Great Day 1 for our Sask Teams at U16 National Championships in Montreal!

After Day one, all three of our Saskatchewan teams are undefeated!

Lumsden Cubs won their first game 4 – 0 over Alberta 3, with a great Pitching performance by one of our 222’s players, Sarah Beatty. Sarah threw a complete game 4 hitter for the shutout win.

The Southeast Hawks also won their only game of the day over the Host Quebec Team, 2-1 in a nail biter. Pitching was also the deciding factor in this one, with the Hawks sending three 222’s players to the mound. Joelle Lamontagne started, throwing the first 3 innings, striking out four. Jorde Chartrand, threw the next 3 innings, giving up 1 run on 1 hit, while striking out three batters. Chantel Sullivan retired the last three outs of the game for the Save.

The Saskatoon Phantoms played two games today, winning both as well. In the first game, the Phantoms defeated Quebec #2, 7-6 in a very close game. 222’s chucker Jayden Montana came in to close out the final 4 innings in this one and was given the game’s MVP Award. In the Phantom’s second game of the day, Montana started in the Pitching Circle. Easily the most exciting game of the tournament thus far. The Phantom’s pulled it out in the 2nd extra inning, to win 3-1 in 9 innings. The line on Montana; 9 innings pitched, 1 unearned run, 6 strike-outs for the win. Payton Allen had a huge day at the plate, going 4 for 5.

Congrats to all three Saskatchewan Teams, but so proud of our 222’s Players! Keep the run going, and good luck the rest of the way!
