The West's best
It’s been a perfect post season for the Spurs.
The Cloverdale Spurs Peewee AAA baseball team, fresh off their provincial title at the B.C. Championships in Prince George, just returned from Spruce Grove Alberta, where they took on the best teams in Western Canada, reports team manager Todd O’Dell.
The B.C. squad dominated, playing 5-0 to win the Western Canadian Championship, pushing their post-season record to a perfect 11-0.
It’s the second year in a row that a Peewee AAA team from Cloverdale has won the Western Canadian title. Team B.C. won all their games by at least eight runs and four of the five games by a 10-run mercy including the semi-final and final. While Team B.C. had solid pitching and great defence, their hot bats were the big story. B.C. led the tournament with a team batting average of .546 while pounding out nearly 18 hits a game. B.C’s Damiano Palmegiani led all hitters with a batting average of .722, earning him the top offensive player award.
Cloverdale’s Bantam AAA U15 and AAA 18U teams recently won silvers at the national baseball championships.
