The Sicamous Ladies Open Fastball Tournament was won by the Vancouver Kaos, who defeated North Delta Lightning in the final game.

Kaos and Lightning both went through the 16-team tournament undefeated until meeting in the final game.

Third place went to the Edmonton Warriors and fourth place to the Langley Xtreme.

The local Sicamous Valley Blacktop Angels failed to win a game, but played some great ball and  lost to both Kaos and North Delta Lightning in earlier games.

Local softball star Christine Dewitt led the Angels in hitting with a .650 batting average, with two triples, one double and six singles in four games. First baseman Kelly Law also held a hot bat, finishing with a .570 batting average.

The tournament was a great success, with many positive comments about the hospitality the teams received from Sicamous residents and businesses.

The Angels’ next action will be when they host their Ladies C Tournament on June 23-24 in Finlayson Park.

The girls will be aiming to improve on their second-place finish from last year and invite all the local ball fans to come out and cheer them on.
