Langford softball players are celebrating a recent win wearing gold medals around their necks.
The Langford Midget C1 team travelled to Richmond for the Richmond Tournament, May 24 to 26. This is the first time the team attended the tournament and the first year many of the players have been on a team together.
After playing four games on Saturday winning three games and ending the other in a tie, the girls earned a bye into the semi-finals on Sunday.
“It was really good competition and it was a really tight tournament all around,” explained Dave Saunders, one of the coaches. “Our girls were hitting so hard they broke two bats.”
In the semi-finals the team played against Fleetwood and won 8-5 and then moved onto the finals against Richmond. On Saturday the Langford team tied with Richmond in the seventh inning, but in the finals they dominated the park winning 12-1.
“This is great for also the girls this is their last year playing and they will age out of minor sports,” said Saunders.
