The Compass - - SPORTS -

A num­ber of fe­male base­ball play­ers from the Con­cep­tion Bay North re­gion are amongst 11 short­listed for Team NL.

In re­lease from Base­ball NL, five play­ers from the Base­ball CBN Bull­dogs sys­tem will be rep­re­sent­ing their province at the Base­ball Canada Na­tional un­der-16 Cham­pi­onships in Vaughn, Ont., Aug. 18-22.

For a three of the lo­cal play- ers it’ll be their sec­ond and third years on the team, while for the rest it’ll be their first taste of un­der-16 ac­tion.

For Stephanie Crane (Up­per Is­land Cove) and Vic­to­ria Rear­don (Bryant’s Cove) it’ll be their third sum­mer don­ning Team NL red. It’ll be Jenna Lee Ralph’s (Spa­niard’s Bay) sec­ond tour with the team.

Mean­while, Hil­lary Rear­don (Bryant’s Cove) and Madi­son Coombs (Bryant’s Cove) will get their first taste of pro­vin­cial team ac­tion.

This is just an ini­tial ros­ter. The coach­ing staff will con­tinue its eval­u­a­tion of any el­i­gi­ble play­ers over the course of the sum­mer. In par­tic­u­lar, coaches will be headed to the CBN Bull­dogs Clas­sic, Mary Tavenor Me­mo­rial Tour­na­ment and the Fes­ti­val of Base­ball to keep an eye on prospec­tive play­ers.
