U16 B.C. fastpitch team named national champs

The White Rock Renegades ’04 went undefeated to secure a national championship Sunday.

The girls have been putting up lopsided victories throughout the U16 tournament – which was held in Calgary from Aug. 14-18 – and Sunday’s final game against Mississauga North Tigers was no exception.

Heading into the match with seven wins and no loses, the Renegades came up swinging in the first inning, delivering two runs.
