The Barriere U14 and U12 girl’s teams competed in the Knock’ em Out of the Park tournament hosted by Kamloops Minor Fastball at the Tournament Capital Ranch in Raleigh this past weekend.

The U14 team was 2-1 in the round robin portion of the tournament, and fell just short in their quarter final game.  MVP’s for the round robin games were Madison Kerslake, Lauren Tremblay and Meghan Booth.

The U12 team went 3-0 in the round robin portion of the tournament, and went into the playoffs as the number one seed.  The girls defeated Vernon in the semi-finals and in a very close contest defeated the Kamloops Krushers by one run in their last at bat of the championship game. MVP’s for the round robin games were Rachel Veitch, Nikki Storey and Mackenzie Ransome.

Trista Stamer and Ariel Lofto won gold playing with the Kamloops S.W.A.T U16 team.

Congratulations to all the Barriere girls.

Coming up on June 20- 22, the Barriere girls will be hosting the Softball BC Regional Championships at the Barriere Ball Parks.  Volunteers are still needed for concession, fields and scoring.  If you can help please call Barriere Minor Ball and Phil Ransome at 250-672-5846.
