The U11 Lloydminter Liners are ending their season on a high note after defeating the Foothills Fury 16-0 in the Softball Alberta U11 “B” Provincial Championship.

This past weekend, the Lloydminster Amateur Softball Association hosted the Softball Alberta U11 and U19 Provincials Championships at Driven Energy Legion Ball Park, and with teams from across Alberta, the competition was tough.

“We had six games altogether and the girls battled hard,” said head coach Chad Oborowsky after Sunday’s win. “We had a hard-fought battle against Red Deer on Saturday morning where we lost a tough one 9-7, but they were a really great team and the girls battled hard and just kept going.

“It’s always good to end the season on a high note, so the girls are super excited, and now we have some celebrating to do.”

Ryan Lessner, who normally plays second or right field, had a great day playing second base and was still buzzing after singing the national anthem during Friday’s opening ceremonies. 

“It felt good to win. We probably should have been in the A finals, but it was still really fun that we won the B final,” she said.

Kamryn Gervais, who plays catcher and shortstop, echoed Lessner and noted the win was a great way to end the season.

“This weekend’s ball was fun to watch and fun to play and all the girls had a fun time and worked as hard as they could,” said Gervais. 

“To end like this was phenomenal for the season.”

Brielle Winter, who either pitches or plays first base, also had a great weekend and said it was fun to win the B champs.

“I think the girls played as hard as they could and it was a good weekend for everyone.”

Catcher Ashley Oborowsky also had a great weekend of play and noted it felt good to win the B championship.
