Athletics - U13 Green (Potter) - 2010 Athletics Qualify For “A” Provincials, Earn Bronze Medals
Submitted By Joe Hancock on Tue 08 02, 22
The 2010 LaSalle Athletics showed their determination once again at last weekend’s Provincial Qualifiers in Corunna, Ontario, qualifying in the top “A” bracket for the upcoming PWSA Grand Finals and earning bronze medals.  This marks the third straight appearance in the highest bracket for the 2010 A’s, each time as the only junior team to qualify.

Excellent pitching and defense combined with consistent hitting fueled the team to a +30 run differential across six games.  The girls battled all weekend, coming within 1 out of advancing to the gold medal game before a heartbreaking 2-1 walk off loss to the 2009 LaSalle Athletics squad.  Despite the ending, the 2010 team has every reason to be proud, having pushed a top team in the province to the brink for a second time in two days.

Overall, the weekend was an amazing showing for the LaSalle Athletics program.  In addition to the 2010 team’s success, the 2009 LaSalle team also qualified for the “A” bracket and earned the silver medals.  That makes the Athletics program the only organization in Ontario to field two “A” teams at the U13 PWSA Grand Finals.  The PWSA Grand Finals will take place in Windsor at Mic Mac Park on August 12-14. 

While the 2022 provincial finals are on the immediate horizon, the 2010 Athletics are eager to continue growing and developing for their long-awaited opportunity as a senior team in 2023.

As always, the team remains appreciative of their generous sponsors that are supporting the 2010 Athletics throughout the season:

            Done Right Services

            Liberty Business Brokers of Ontario

            Robinson Transport
