It’s off to the 11 and under AA Provincials in Newton, July 31 – Aug. 3 for the Quesnel Blue Jays.

The AA Mosquito team has been blazing through the competition winning five of their nine games played so far, with two losses and one tie.

“We started practicing together at the beginning of May,” coach Ron Miciuk said. “But we really put it together in the third week of June.”

The team recently travelled to Kamloops for a tournament where they rang in their first loses of the season, winning only one of the three games played.

They later played Kamloops on their home field, tying with the visiting team.

The Blue Jays have triumphed over the team from Prince George, playing and winning four games in the last month.

The Quesnel Blue Jays first game of the provincial competition is against South Surrey followed by a match against the host team from Newton.

The next day they are matched against Penticton and Aldergrove.

The Blue Jays are currently the only AA provicial 11 under team in the north and were invited to the provicials and will be the north representatives for province.
