The Drumheller Miners U 13 AA team finished ranked #2 and thus qualified for Tier 1 status which placed them in the top eight teams who competed in Okotoks on August 4 to 6, 2023.
The teams were divided into two pools of four teams. in Game 1 Drumheller defeated St. Albert Cardinals 11 to 5. Game 2 saw Drumheller defeat Red Deer Northstar Braves 9 to 3. Game 3 Drumheller defeated SWEMBA White Sox Black (Edmonton) 7 to 4.
Drumheller then crossed over to play Okotoks Outlaws where the winner would advance to the gold medal game. Okotoks jumped out to a 4 to O lead. Drumheller played catch-up all game and got to within 1 run but their season ended with a 10 to 8 loss.
Okotoks went on to play Consort Cubs who were ranked #1 and Consort came away the Alberta Champions with a 17 to 10 win. A huge than you goes out to the coaching staff for the many hours spent improving the boys baseball skills!
