DELTA â€” Grit and determination paid off for the Delta Heat 01 girls.
The Heat â€” who could have used some of exactly that â€” battled through miserable, wet softball weather and played with heart to earn silver in the U14A provincials last weekend in Chilliwack.
Surrey Storm 01A took gold with a 4-0 win in the final game on Sunday (July 26). The squad was undefeated in the tourney.
The Heat 01 will now be one of three teams representing B.C. at the Canadian Nationals, which is being held from Aug. 4 to 9 in Victoria.
The Heat 01 is comprised of Stephanie Schina, Mackenzie Last, Rachel Schultz, Aymee Godmaire, Olivia Malesku, Megan Hendrickson, Hanna Hansen, Jessie Weststrate, Dannica Desgroseilliers, Amy de Ste Croix and Jenaya Basi.
They are coached by Bill Olexa, Bob Houtman, Doug Harris and Katie Harris.
The team’s manager is Kathy de Ste Croix.
