Tsawwassen Amateur Baseball’s 9U all-star team capped a terrific summer season with a third place finish at the 16-team Andrew’s Invitational Tournament last weekend in Cloverdale.
The Athletics were led by great pitching and a strong defence that resulted in only three runs against in all of round-robin play, before finally losing in a hard-fought extra innings battle to White Rock.
The inaugural all-star campaign for these players resulted in a 10-3 overall record that also included a fifth place finish at the White Rock South Surrey Baseball Association Invitational. More importantly, is the progress the kids have made in their skill development coming off of two years of very limited play due to the pandemic.
“The players should be proud of their accomplishments and know there is a promising future for this group,” stated coaches Darcy Coonfer, Derek Rattenbury, Michael Clarke and Slade Sanders.
The team includes: Max Cassar, Lachlan Chow, Bowen Clarke, Tyson Coonfer, William Durkin, Charlie Johnston, Joshua Nutzhorn Jr., Charlie O'Gorman, Cameron Pitts, Carter Rattenbury, Drew Roberts and Jaxon Sanders.
