Angels, Stealers off to strong start

U14 Stealers see one win, one loss; U18 Angels win first three games.

Softball season is underway.

The U14 team Sicamous Stealers began the season with a loss to Vernon and a win over Enderby this past week.

In the win against Enderby, the team was led by pitcher Jacob Dewitt, who struck out 10 batters in the game, and Sean Spelay and Raegan Starkell who led the offense.

The U14 Stealers are coached by Rob Sutherland and have 14 players. The team’s next home game is Thursday April 28 versus Kelowna 2 at Diamond #1 in Finlayson Park.

The U18 Sicamous Angels started their season on a high note, winning their first three league games.

On Tuesday, April 19 the Angels travelled to Vernon and thumped  them 13-0. Sicamous pitcher Julia Wilby had a very strong game with 10 strikeouts and allowing only one hit.

The offense was a team effort with all players hitting safely and scoring runs.

At the Angels’ home opener in Sicamous on Thursday, April 21 the girls played a tremendous game against Kelowna.

Local MLA Greg Kyllo visited the team before the game to present a cheque for new uniforms, and the positive atmosphere carried over onto the ballfield with a strong defensive game.

Wilby pitched three strong innings, striking out five and allowing two runs on four hits. Madison Dewitt came in to pitch in the fourth inning with the teams tied 2-2. Dewitt pitched the last four innings, shutting down the Kelowna bats, striking out 10 and allowing one hit and no runs.

Jordan Carr led the offense with a tworun home run in the fifth inning to score the deciding runs and ensure a tough 4-2 win.

The Angels have two league games on the road this week, with home games on Tuesday, May 3 against Vernon and Thursday, May 5 against Kelowna. All games are played at Diamond #3  in Finlayson Park, game time 6:30 p.m.

All locals are invited to come out and support this outstanding team.
