Provost Squirts Girls Win First Place at Alberta Softball Championships
The Provost Squirts C Girls softball team won gold medals for their first place finish in Alberta championships held in Sherwood Park in July.

Provost’s 12 and under team arrived on July 23 for the two day tournament to find out that due to rain earlier in the week the Saturday games had been cancelled. That meant that provincial finals would come down to a one day affair.

Provost received an opening round bye meaning the quest to gold would be shortened to two games.

Provost’s first game was against Ponoka and their flame throwing pitcher. She was the hardest throwing pitcher Provost had seen this year, and although she struck out six of Provost’s first seven batters Provost was able to remain tied at one after two innings. In the third Provost was able to get some runners on base and broke the game wide open scoring five times to take a 6-1 lead. Provost’s pitching and defence was superb, and the team continued to widen the lead eventually winning 14-1.

Heading into the final against Lacombe, Provost was dealt a blow when its starting pitcher was unable to play since taking a pitch off her ankle in the previous game. Kendra Worobo was thrust into the role as starting pitcher. Coach Lorne Paulgaard said that when the moment arrived she didn't disappoint as she “pitched the game of her young life. The same could be said of the entire team as we picked the most important game of the year to hit and field our best. We built a 10-1 lead after two and one half innings but a resilient Lacombe team scored five runs in the bottom of the third to make the score 10-6.”

Provost however responded in the top of the fourth. Lauren Kroetsch’s bases clearing triple over the left fielder’s head helped not only restore the nine run lead, but restored momentum, and from there the team cruised to a 20-9 victory becoming provincial champions.

It was a special year as the team lost only once all season.
