The Port aux Basques Hur­ri­canes fin­ished third at provin­cial soft­ball com­pe­ti­tion last week­end, go­ing un­de­feated in the round robin and los­ing only one game in the crossovers.

Ten teams par­tic­i­pated in the tour­na­ment hosted in Bay Roberts Aug. 16-19.

Coach Shel­don Street says he is de­lighted with the team’s re­sults.

“The boys played awe­some and can’t wait for next year to go again,” says Street, who also com­mended the team’s vol­un­teer coaches and man­age­ment. “These kids have come so far words can­not de­scribe the im­prove­ment.”

Dur­ing the tour­na­ment play­ers of the game were se­lected af­ter each com­pe­ti­tion. Re­cip­i­ents from Port aux Basques were: Mor­gan Col­bourne, Alexan­der Carter, Cody Drover, Nicholas Thorne, and Nicholas Davis.
