U19 C Peninsula softball team win district 1 championships, move on to provincials

The Peninsula Power U19 girls nestled themselves into this weekend’s provincials after plowing through the district 1 championships last month.

In Duncan June 22-24, the Power went undefeated through the championships and earned a decisive victory in the finals, winning 16-0 against Sooke for the gold medal.

Sooke hosts provincials this weekend, July 6-8.

“In the final, they really brought it forward,” said coach Lauri Gordon.

“A lot of the girls on the team have been playing together since they were seven years old and a lot of the girls I’ve coached since that time. They get along really well.”

The team advanced to provincials last year as well after winning the district 1 tourney but didn’t make it to the finals.
