The U18 Melfort Spirit girls softball team finished sixth at Westerns in Richmond, British Columbia from August 10 to 13.The Spirit finished the round robin with a 2 win 4 loss record.

We had three games that came down to the last at bat loss by a run in the seventh so we could have easily been 5-1 which would have taken us into Sunday, Spirit coach Darren Rokochy said.

Their final record was tied for sixth place which Rokochy thought was an excellent showing.

Rokochy added that the team played its best ball since it was formed and has shown some incredible growth in the past few seasons.

This is definitely making this Spirit team a true contender going into next season, he added.

Some highlights in the tournament included their first over the fence home run provided by Etta VanBurgesteden.

It was truly an awesome moment for her and the team, Rokochy added.

Westerns were overall a success in the eyes of the organization.

Our team had personal success by knowing we lost to the winning team by a run in the last at bat, beat the silver medalists, and lost to the bronze medal team as well by a run in the seventh All in all it was a great performance from the girls.
