Central Saanich Extreme fastball tournament a success

U12 B tourney draws eight teams to Brentwood Bay fields.

Central Saanich Extreme second baseman Cecelia (CC) Pringle tags the runner from Strawberry Vale (Victoria) to get an out during the May 3 bronze medal game in Brentwood Bay.

Eight teams — six from Vancouver Island and two from the mainland — were in Central Saanich May 2-3 for the Extreme Fastball Under-12 B tournament.

For the local squad, they played their way into the bronze medal game Sunday, May 3 against Strawberry Vale. It was a close game and saw the Extreme B’s, as they call themselves, take a 6-4 lead into the top of the final inning. Strawberry Vale would score four times, however, taking an 8-6 lead that would hold as the final score.

Parents from both sides cheered the girls’ effort in what was called by one, “a great game, nail biting to the end.”

On the main diamond at Rom Knott Park, teams from Richmond and Cloverdale played in the gold medal game.

In other action, the Extreme’s U14 B team won gold and U14 C team won silver at tournaments on the weekend.
