The girls are excited as we prepare for Nationals. We hope to continue our success there.” - Coach Jason Larner
The Angels lost their first game against Saskatoon Selects A before a heavy downpour on Friday of the provincial playoff weekend. It seemed questionable whether they would be able to play on Saturday due to wet diamonds, but parents, coaches and other community members pulled together to get a couple of diamonds going Saturday morning despite the puddles that had been there the night before. All games continued for the weekend. After handily beating Regina Kaos and Prince Albert Aces the Angels suffered a loss against the Saskatoon Co-op Selects Saturday evening but still ended up in second place in round robin play. Another game against the Saskatoon Co-op Selects Sunday morning resulted in a win giving them a bye straight to the final where they met the Saskatoon Co-op Selects yet again. They played hard to top them again for an exciting gold medal win.
Coach Jason Larner said of the provincial playoff weekend, “The girls played the team game we have worked hard all year to put together on the field. They played solid defense, were disciplined at the plate and aggressive on the bases.” The team is now getting ready for tough competition in Kitchener, Ontario. “The girls are excited as we prepare for Nationals. We hope to continue our success there.”
Masen Sideroff has played for the Twin City Angels since the creation of the club in 2013. She says, “I’m so proud of all my girls and the effort put into the great weekend of ball we had. I am excited to see what comes for us on the next step!”
The team roster is Payton Allan, Danny Bertoncini, Jodi Bouvier, Brady Gaucher, Macie Kuppenbender, Kalei Larner, Megan Laskowski, Carlie Meikle, Brooklyn Renneberg, Alexa Ridgewell, Morgan Ripplinger, Mackenzie Rowan, Brooklyn Rowley, Sydney Rowley and Masen Sideroff. Coaches are Jason Larner, Colleen Rowley and Mary Bertoncini. (Two of the players listed are players from the PA Aces who are joining the team at Nationals, Macie and Morgan).
You have a chance to check out the girls play in Warman this Wednesday (July 31) at 6:30 pm at Prairie Oasis #6. Admission will be a Toonie or a bag of bottles to help get the team to Nationals in Ontario! Come out and watch some great ball and support the team!
