The annual Sicamous Ladies Open Fastball Tournament was held in Finlayson Park this past weekend.

Despite the threat of rain, the 10 teams played all day on Saturday through sun, showers and downpours.

At the end of the day, the Fleetwood Force from Surrey placed first in the round robin with a three-win, zero-loss record.

Placing second with two wins and a tie was the Calgary Red Sox and tied for third with two-win, one-loss records were Strathmore Magic and Kaos from Vancouver.

All 10 teams were seeded for the playoff round on Sunday, but it was not to be, as it rained all night on Saturday and Sunday morning, making the ball fields unplayable and the tournament had to be cancelled due to rain. Final placings were based on round-robin record, with Fleetwood taking home first-place prize money.


Also on Saturday, the Sicamous Angels U18B girls team hosted a series of exhibition games with the Kamloops U18B team and the White Rock Renegades 02 U14A team.

The Renegades, undefeated in Canada this season at 38-0, showed why they are regarded as the top team in B.C. and a top contender for the Canadian Championship in Winnipeg this August, with lopsided wins over Sicamous (11-1) and Kamloops (16-0, 12-0).

Twin Anchors hosted White Rock while they were in Sicamous.

Sicamous defeated Kamloops 7-2 in their game.

All of the teams in Sicamous Minor Softball will be playing at home in Finlayson Park on Tuesday, June 7. Come out and watch our U10 team, coached by Lindy Dewitt and Jayme Laroy, play Enderby on Diamond #2, our U14 Sicamous Stealers playing Enderby and, on Diamond #3, the U18B Sicamous Angels will be playing Vernon.
