B.C. fastball champs on tap

The best in B.C. will be in Richmond this weekend, with no fewer than three provincial fastball titles up for grabs.

The Richmond Girls’ Softball Association is hosting the provincial Senior B Women’s Softball Championship Friday through Sunday at London Fields, while across town at Merrell Fields (at Palmer Secondary), the Richmond Boys’ Fastball Association is hosting the provincial under-14 and under-18 boys’ championships.

The Richmond Islanders 92-93 and Richmond Senior B Islanders are both hoping to fare well in the  provincial women’s finale.

Coached by Dawn Stadel, the Richmond Mariners’ under-14 boys’ team  recently concluded league play with 18 wins in 25 games and has already qualified for the Western Canadians Aug. 2 to 5 in Saskatoon.
