Langley Extreme tops province

What a B.C. Day long weekend it was for the Langley Extreme senior B women’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.

“Our defence was stellar all weekend,” Extreme head coach Kerry Niven said. “Our hitting started off slow on the Saturday but came alive the rest of the tournament. And our pitching was awesome, as well.”

The Langley players had to shake off some rust.

Going into the B.C. tournament, they hadn’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 Women’s Fastpitch League, which Niven said “is considered the elite league of the Lower Mainland.”

“Our team has been together for four years, now, and are looking forward to the challenge of playing senior A next year,” 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.
