It’s an exciting time for our young and upcoming softballers. The U19 national softball tournaments were held at the beginning of January in Christchurch (Boys) and North Harbour (Girls).
Playing for reigning champions Hutt Valley, sisters Mikayla and Caitlyn Lewin went all the way to a Gold medal with a win over Wellington in a tense final. 15 year old Caitlyn earned a place in the Tournament Team which capped off a great season for the sisters which included Mikayla being elevated to the White Sox squad.
In the boy’s tournament, Will MacDonald pitched his Upper South Island (USI) team to 3rd place in the tournament and earned himself a place in the Tournament Team.
