Warriors Fastpitch successfully hosted our first fundraising tournament the weekend of June 7th to 9th at several diamonds in the Kitchener-Waterloo community. The tournament was attended by 23 teams in two divisions (U16 & U19). Teams battled initially in pool play, and then into playoff brackets.
The U16 event was won by the Halton Hawks, as they came from behind in the final inning to defeat the Palmerston Marlins in the final game. The Hawks earlier that day defeated the #2 seed Waterloo Ghosts in the semi-final. The Marlins reached the final by knocking out the UTM 2K4 team in the morning match.
The U19 tournament had two playoff brackets. The main bracket was won by the Oakville Angels who were the only team over the entire weekend to not lose one game. Oakville defeated the Waterloo Ghosts Gold team in the final game. These two teams have been to Canadian Nationals several times in recent years. In the other bracket final it was the Quebec Rebelles, beating the Guelph Gators.
Warriors Fastpitch thanks all teams for attending and looks to make this an annual event. Thank you to all our club members, coaches, and fans for devoting time over the weekend to help make it a success.
