Brayden Peters, Most Valuable Player for the U14 Calgary Adrenaline
Local ball player Brayden Peters has won recognition as her softball team’s Most Valuable Player.
The thirteen-year-old won the award after a strong season playing with the under 14 Calgary Adrenaline.
Peters also won Player of the Game for the Adrenaline after hitting a home run with two on base, to help her team win a come-from-behind victory by one point over Saskatchewan in the U14 finals.
As a result, the Adrenaline came away with a bronze medal win at the Western Canadian U14 Softball Championships in Lloydminster.
Calgary Adrenaline swept both games on day one of the championships, winning over the BC1 team by a score of 5 to 1, then winning their game with the MB2 team by a score of 9 - 7.
The team then lost to the BC2 team 6 - 1, taking them to the bronze medal match with Saskatchewan.
The Adrenaline won their game with the Red Deer Rage at provincials in July to advance to the championships in Lloydminster.
Peters hit a home run and scored the final winning run in provincials to end the game and help her team capture gold.
The Calgary Adrenaline play as part of the Girls Prairie League Softball (GPLS).
