After going 3 and 0 in the preliminary round, the 06B Storm had a minor hiccup in the playoff round, but came back with the Silver Medal to qualify for Provincials. The girls really worked hard and are now battle ready for Provincials. They are very excited to represent our organization and district at the up coming Provincials.
Great job Storm!
The B division District Championships were at Fleetwood this past weekend and it was a very successful weekend for the Surrey Storm teams. In the U12B division, the 06B Storm won silver and advance to the provincials. In U14B, our 05B team fell short but our 04B team will host and participate at the provincials. In the U16B division as you may have seen already, the 03B Storm team won gold. The 02B Storm won bronze. Both teams advance to the provincials. And finally in the U19B category, the 01B Storm won gold and the 99B Storm won silver and both advance to the provincials. It was a great job by all of our Storm teams.
A big thank you goes out to the Fleetwood Fastpitch Association for hosting a great event as well to all the umpires and volunteers. Congrats to the other teams from District 7 that made the provincials as well.
Storm 03B had a great weekend at Districts. There were seven teams in their division and they started the Play-Downs with wins over both the Thunder 02 and Thunder 03 teams. This moved them to the quarter final bracket where they lost to the Fury 02 team. In the Semi Final they beat the Storm 02 which set up the rematch against Fury 02 in the final. This time they defeated the Fury 02 to win Gold. Now they are off to Kelowna for the provincials. Congrats team! Great weekend!
The 2006 Storm B team had a strong showing in Kelowna this past weekend. They started out strong on Saturday morning and won their first game and then lost the next one but regrouped and won their last game on Saturday. The first playoff didn't go as well as they wanted but worked hard and made it to the Bronze game. They took charge early and ended up winning 17 to 3 to take the Bronze. The girls were extremely excited about this tournament because it meant going to the hotel and hanging out and swimming. They had a BBQ on Saturday during the games and a fun pizza party on Saturday night. In the end, they were glad to leave Kelowna at 6 pm Sunday because that meant they were in the medal round. Overall it was a great weekend ball wise but it would have been nice if there was a little more of that so called Okanagan Sunshine. Way to go Storm!
