Castlegar girls softball teams had a busy season this year, with four mixed t-ball teams (thank you Takaia and Jeramiah), a mites team, two junior teams and one senior girls team.

Our house windup this year was held at the Kinnaird Park fields from June 7 – 9, with 14 teams from Fruitvale, Salmo, Trail and Castlegar playing in the wind up.

Our teams performed well, with the mites receiving a bronze medal, the Jokers taking a silver medal and the Blue Fusion also netting a bronze. The senior girls placed third and three Castlegar girls played on the PeeWee B team that took a silver in the senior division. It was an exciting and very busy weekend and we thank all the volunteers that helped out.

Many of our girls also played on West Kootenay rep teams this year: Makayla Ambrosio played on the U19C team; Elora Hipwell, Allison Griffiths, Shelby Streloff, Brittnay Strelaeff, Molly Benbow, Annie Lepage and Michelle Sofonoff played on U16B team; Emma Lloyd, Chelsea Makeiv and Kelsey Patterson played on the U14B team; Kiya Hipwell, Trinity Kentrop, Sydney Sherstobitoff, Alexis Craig, April Gariepy and Taylor Craig (bat girl) played on the U14C team.

These teams travelled to tournaments and represented district 10 at the provincials.

The U12C Regionals were held in Trail this year and Castlegar sent a team. The girls did very well, placing second in their division and fourth out of 10 teams. Playing on the team were: Ella Handley, Averi Handley, Taylor Craig, Alexis Craig, Trinity Kentrop, Sydney Sherstobitoff, Kalee Glennie, Kiya Hipwell, Casey Alexander, Sian Spiller-Tisserand, Kadence Ferreira, Sierra Pushie, Connor Salekin. Coaches were: Ben Spiller, Ryan Ferreira, Wayne Salekin and Derek Hipwell.

Great job girls and coaches, we are very proud of you.

The Castlegar Girls Softball Association would like to thank all the  coaches, parents, friends, neighbours, businesses and families who came out to support our children this ball season. See you again next year!
