Delta girls softball team second at nationals

The 2001 Delta Heat capped off their season with a silver medal finish at the U14A Canadian Softball Nationals held in Victoria Aug. 5-9.

The team was unbeaten after six pool play games and headed to the playoffs, where they lost their first game against the host Victoria Devils.

After regrouping, the team fought back and won their next three playoff games with wins over the Oakville Angels (5-0), Waterloo Ghosts (9-2) and the host Victoria Devils (11-7) to make their way to the gold medal game against the 2001 Surrey Storm.

The girls battled hard in the gold medal game but fell just short and lost 2-1 in extra innings (nine innings) to the Storm.
