Smitty’s Terminators Y2K girls’ fast pitch softball team won the U14 Canadian Fastpitch Championship in Surrey, B.C., this past weekend.
The team is made up of 13 girls ages 12-14 who practise all winter and play in tournaments across Canada and the U.S. They beat the heavily favoured White Rock Renegades (B.C.) in the final 5-1.
The Terminators outscored their opponents 37-5 in five playoff games — vs. Victoria Devils (5-2), vs. Richmond Islanders (13-0), vs. Quebec Rebelles (4-2), vs. Waterloo Ghosts (10-0) and vs. WhiteRock Renegades (5-1).
Led by coach Holly Kitchen, this is the first Manitoba team to win the U14 championship since it started in 2000 … the year the majority of the players were born.
