Rumsey boys win gold in Provincials with Hanna team

    After a great start in Okotoks and Sylvan Lake, the Hurricanes Peewee boys were moved up to Tier 2. 
    Two more tournaments later and some good ball played (as well as some valuable lessons learned!) the Hurricanes were retiered into Tier 3 for the final Provincial weekend in Stony Plain.      On July 16 the Hurricanes defeated Calgary 16-4 and Stony Plain 15-0. 
    In the July 17 game they defeated Sherwood Park 19-13. 
    A win against Fort McMurray 18-8 on July 18 advanced the boys into the Gold medal game against Fort McMurray. 
    The team, which include Rumsey residents, Garrett Holowath and Evan Hampton, played a textbook game of baseball to defeat Fort McMurray again with a score of 7-3 to take home the Gold medal.
    A great year was had by all thanks to an awesome team of boys, coaches, manager Christine Rees and official pitch counter Kathy Ferguson.
