2014 PROVINCIAL RESULTS
The Enderby Storm U19 softball team battled strong in the 2014 Provincial championships in Richmond July 4-6. The forecast was gloomy as their draw placed them in round robin games against teams like the top seeded Cranbrook Heat, Victoria Royal Stingers, Richmond Panthers and Chilliwack Storm. The Enderby team, along with pick up pitcher and catcher from West Kelowna started strong keeping tied with Cranbrook 3-3 through 3 innings. Then succumbing to the lightening speed of the Cranbrook picture, lost 15-3. Against Victoria, the Storm was leading after 4 innings only to have the bats grow cold and lose 8-5. In a back and forth game with strong defence, the Storm girls from the Okanagan could not find the sticks and lost a close one to Richmond 4-2. Their last round robin game found the girls behind 5-1 after the 1st inning. However, channelling their motivational pep talk from hometown Olympian, Marni Abbott, the girls focused on team work and the love of the game, to come back and win 8-5. Placing 12th out of 16 teams, the coaches and fans were very proud of the efforts and sportsmanship this group of young ladies displayed while proudly representing their hometown. Two of the teams in their pool, Cranbrook and Victoria, took gold and silver in the Final. The team wishes to thank all those who supported, sponsored and cheered them on during this memorable season!
