Outlaws end on high note

The peewee Design Flooring Outlaws girls’ softball team finish second in last tournament of the season.

The peewee Design Flooring Outlaws girls’ softball team nabbed second  down south at the Pepsi challenge.

With three wins, and only a single loss over the tournament, the team finished off their season with a bang.

“It was a great way to end,”  Paige Flanagan, the team’s coach, said.

“Hard work and dedication was what did it.”

Their first game, the Outlaws ran up against Kamloops. The southern team, however, gave them no problems as the girls posted 18 runs against the Kamloops girls’ lonely three.

Sooke, however, gave the girls a run, sneaking by the Outlaws 6-8.

That didn’t seem to affect the girls performance against Prince George. The Outlaws took the game 14-3.

The roll continued through their game against Coquitlam. The girls once again managed 14 trips home, versus Coquitlam’s two.

The pitching team of Carli Gibbs and Amanda Lawrence did great, said Flanagan, with Aiyana Basi and Janelle Izzard offering back up when needed.

Kyra Buchan played well on first base, with many great catches and plays for outs.

Tianna Brookes also played a great four games on third.

Christina and Amanda Lawrence managed three home runs between them, two in the final game.

Flanagan said she is proud of her team’s performance both on and off the field, praising her team for good conduct and all-around politeness as they faced off against their competitors.

Now the team will retreat to the gym as the cold weather washes over the interior, readying itself for spring of next year.
