Barriere teen Mathew Lee has enjoyed an exciting season this year playing on the Clearwater Crushers U16 Boys Softball Team.
During the weekend of July 5 and 6, the Crushers competed in the U16 Boys Provincial Softball Championships hosted in Clearwater.
The Crushers played four games on Sunday, facing the Richmond Mariners in the final and squeezed out a 5-4 win in an exciting game, with the Prince George Tumbleweeds taking the bronze.
As a result of the Crushers’ gold medal win, most of the team and Lee, moved on to the BC Summer Games in Nanaimo, on July 18, to represent Zone 2 (Thompson-Okanagan). The Zone 2 team ended up the weekend playing Zone 8 (Cariboo-Northeast) for the bronze medal in a close game with the final score 5-6 for Zone 2.
Now that most of the summer ball tournaments are over, Lee is starting to get ready for an active fall and winter hockey season.
