The Sicamous Senior Angels successfully defended their tournament title with a strong 6-1 win over the Calgary Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

Led by strong defence from Christine Dewitt, fine pitching from Gina Selfe and timely hits from Bianca Dewitt and Emily Burren, the Senior Angels rolled through the playoffs undefeated after a two-win, one-loss record in the round-robin section of the tournament on Saturday and a third seeding in the playoff round. The Angels avenged their only loss of the round-robin, a 7-6 loss to the Calgary Wolves, by defeating the Calgary team in the final.

The Sicamous Junior Angels placed a strong third in the 10-team tournament. After a three-win, zero-loss record in the round-robin on Saturday, which included wins over Vernon (9-0), Cloverdale (6-3) and the LNG Dreams (9-2), the Junior Angels were seeded first after round-robin play. After a close 7-6 win in the first playoff game against Richmond, the Angels ran out of gas against the strong Calgary Wolves team and were eliminated, settling for third place. Sicamous was led by pitcher Madison Dewitt, who averaged 10 strikeouts per game.

Second baseman Fallon Todd was hot on the bat, with a .600 batting average and several great hits in the tournament. Shortstop Julia Wilby made several highlight-reel plays to rob the opposition of hits, and fielder Tiffany Sigvaldason had several good hits, including driving in the winning run in the playoff game win.

Next up for the Junior Angels is the U18B Provincial Championship being held in Sicamous on July 8, 9 and 10. The team is placing very well and is excited about showing local fans some great fastball action! Please plan to come out and support the local team.
