Aldergrove-based B.C. Her-icanes are the Western Peewee Girls Baseball Champions.

Team B.C. Her-icanes finish with gold in 2013 Westerns

Her-icanes brought home the gold from Redcliff, Alberta at the Western Canada Baseball Association Peewee Girls Championship held Aug. 8-11

The B.C. Select Pee Wee Her-icanes brought home the gold from Redcliff, Alberta at the Western Canada Baseball Association Peewee Girls Championship held August 8-11.

The Her-icanes began the tournament Friday with a convincing 12-2 win over Team Alberta.  Saturday then saw the girls follow up with a pair of back-to-back wins, a 25-11 victory over Team Manitoba, followed by a 17-0 win over the Okanagan Halos.

On Sunday, the Her-icanes played the host team of Alberta in the finals. The game went back and forth for the first three innings but the offence caught fire in the fourth inning after Team Alberta’s starting pitcher suffered a tournament-ending injury. B.C. carried on to rally to a 13-3 victory and claim the gold.

Without a doubt it was the phenomenal pitching, solid defence and extraordinary bursts of offence — including four out of the park home runs — that led to the Pee Wee Her-icanes’ victory.

The B.C. Select team includes two Aldergrove players, sisters Christina and Victoria Ross. The Her-icanes team roster consists of Gulseerat Boparai, Emma Brezdan, Elizabeth Gilder, Kaila Kondo, Emma March, Isabella Melnuk, Svetlana Moukanhov, Abby Parson, Alexa Robichaud, Christina Ross, Victoria Ross, Kaya Soukawa, and Veronica Wong. Coaches are Bruce Murdoch, Bill Beckett and Wayne Bampton.
