Our Girls' Slo-Pitch team did SHDHS, Huron County, and the AMDSB proud these past two days in the 20th Annual Ontario Girls' SloPitch Tournament in Dorchester. This year saw 36 teams from across Ontario trying for top team in A, AA, and AAA baseball. Today, we went into the tournament to win. Having won one and lost one game yesterday, the girls needed to win every game they played for the AA Champions. They played solidly for four games. Our first game this morning at 9:00 saw us playing against Ancaster's Bishop Tonnos CSS. We took them 13 to 1. Our next game was at 11:30 against New Hamburg's Waterloo-Oxford SS. The girls again played solid defense and were able to win 11 to 5. With no break, we went right back at it against one of the most difficult teams, Michael Powers CSS from Toronto at 1:00. Despite some drama on the field (and no it was not Mrs. McLellan or myself), the girls kept their cool and their sense of humour. The score was tied 11-11 and thankfully we had home field advantage as we pulled out the 12-11 win. The championship game was against Brampton's St. Thomas Aquinas Cardinals at 4:00. We were up 3 - 0 in the six inning when Brampton pulled out 2 runs. The 7th inning was ours to win or lose as we needed to hold the runs. Final score 3-2. Needless to say, there were some pretty estatic girls, parents, and coaches. If you see any of our ladies on Monday, please congratulate them. They played AWESOME!!!
