What a B.C. Day long weekend it was for the Langley Extreme senior B womenâ€™s fastpitch team.
The Extreme won the B.C. championship tournament at Softball City in South Surrey, to cap what was a marvellous season for the team.
The Extreme rolled to a perfect 6-0 record, beating the Fleetwood Force in the quarterfinals, New West Riot in the semifinals, and once again beating the Riot 7-3 in the gold medal match-up.
â€œOur defence was stellar all weekend,â€ Extreme head coach Kerry Niven said. â€œOur hitting started off slow on the Saturday but came alive the rest of the tournament. And our pitching was awesome, as well.â€
The Langley players had to shake off some rust.
Going into the B.C. tournament, they hadnâ€™t played a game in three-and-a-half weeks.
Earlier in their season, the Extreme won the Kassandra Kaulius Memorial Tournament in Cloverdale back in June with, once again, a 6-0 record.
In another tournament, played in May at North Delta, the Extreme finished in second place.
The Extreme plays out of the Moody Park Moody Park Womenâ€™s Fastpitch League, which Niven said â€œis considered the elite league of the Lower Mainland.â€
â€œOur team has been together for four years, now, and are looking forward to the challenge of playing senior A next year,â€ he added.
The Extreme include Christina Blouin, Theresa Blouin, Amanda Dyck, Leah Dyck, Emily Fournier, Stacy Fournier, Breanna Guy, Kacy Hannesson, Jesica Hodge, Cody Irwin, Jenna McArthur, Heather Mitchell, Lara Nicoll, Laurie-May Quon, and Amanda Wiebe, along with coaches Tracey Dyck and Kerry Niven.
