Undefeated through the first two days of play, the Surrey Storm ’95 lost twice Sunday to the White Rock Renegades ’95, and settled for second place at the provincial under-18 girls softball championship at Cloverdale Athletic Park.

The Storm won all four round robin games by a 36-4 aggregate, and were seeded first for the six-team double-knockout playoff round Sunday. The playoff began well, as the Storm topped the Victoria Devils ‘’96 by a 13-5 score, but then they were handed their first loss of the day (3-1) by the Renegades.

Surrey then stopped the Devils again, winning 10-3 in six innings. Kylie Rubens-Auguston with a two-run home run, and Taylor Miller and Courtney Patterson with two RBIs each were the offensive leaders for the Storm.

In the tournament’s championship game, the Renegades ’95 completed the sweep of the Storm with a 4-2 win.

Both teams, along with the third-place Devils and the fourth-place White Rock Renegades ’96 will compete at the national championship tournament Aug. 12-19 in Charlottetown, P.E.I.

The Storm program also won provincial championships in two other age groups. The Storm ’98 edged the Storm ’97 in the final of the under-16 girls B tournament in Port Alberni. At the under-12 girls A tournament in Maple Ridge, the Storm ’01 claimed the BC championship, while the Delta Heat ’01 placed second.

In the under-12 girls B category in Sicamous, the Storm ’01 team won a silver medal.

Surrey teams swept the top three placed in the under-12 boys C tournament in Clearwater. The Clvoerdale Hurricanes won the gold medal, the North Surrey Stealers took the silver and the Fleetwood Stealers claimed the bronze.

The Fleetwood Marlins won the championship at the under-16 boys C tournament in Clearwater.
