Head coach Brad Cassavant said the team is a group of friends both on and off the court, which creates a special team dynamic.

“It just makes it easier to come to the ballpark, cheer each other on and win, because they love the game and they love each other,” he said. “For a couple of the guys, this is their fourth straight state championship.”

The team went 21-1 this season and will play at the Westerns in Manitoba next month.

The U11 Astros A ended the weekend with a heartbreaking 8-7 loss to Parkland in the championship finals to win a silver medal. The B team finished with three losses and one win.

On the girls side, Prince Albert Aces U11 A North went undefeated in the round robin. They defeated two teams from Saskatoon in the championship round and ended up in the gold medal game against another team from Saskatoon. They eventually took home a silver medal after losing 10-5 in the final.

Meadow Lake hosted games for the U11 B Girls North. That Prince Albert Aces B team went 0-3 in round robin play.

The U13 C Aces teams did not get past the round robin at their provincial tournament in Delisle. Team Gordon ended the weekend with three losses, while Team Boulet ended with one win and two losses.

There is plenty more softball to be found in the coming weeks. The U17 B Girls Provincial Championship is next weekend in Regina. So is the U13 Girls Tournament. The U15 A Girls Provincial Draw is in Prince Albert the weekend of July 19th, along with the U15 Open Boys Provincial Event. Both the Aces and Astros have teams playing.

Over the next few days, Prince Albert will host some of the world’s best softball teams for the WBSC Men’s Softball World Cup Group B Qualifiers. The opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday, with Team Canada taking on Team Hong Kong in the main event that evening. You can find ticket sales and more information here.
