Local softballers compete at Alberta Summer Games


    Two local girls made Drumheller’s softball presence known at the Alberta Summer Games in late July.
    Bailey Faubion, 15 and Kirsten Peters, 14 travelled to Alberta’s Peace River area on July 19-25.
    “It was a life changing experience,” says Faubion, of the friends she made and experience of the games.     Their team ended sixth overall in the games. They were able to go because their team was champions of their respective zones.
    “It was very cool, a different experience for sure,” says Peters.
    “We bonded with the team- we have all exchanged phone numbers, some girls were crying because we’d never really meet each other again.”
    Faubion took it a step further and played for Team Alberta in nationals.
    “I improved my game a lot there,” says Faubion, “all around I improved batting, offence and defence.”
    Faubion says she hopes to take her experiences further, hopefuly securing a scholarship to play softball at the university level.   
    Softball has wrapped up this season, but the two girls say they will continue to play next summer.
