Oceanside Minor Softball Association has three of its rep Rage girls teams advancing to different provincial championships this weekend.
The U14B , U16B and U19B Rage teams had impressive outings in their playdown events to earn provincial berths in their respective divisions.
The U14B Rage, coached by Shelley Toomer, have been gaining some serious speed and peaked at the right time to knock out Ladysmith, Nanaimo Breakers and Duncan to finish first and advance to the provincials in Langley this weekend.
The U16B Rage had a tougher outing but held strong to finish second against the Nanaimo Diamonds in their playdowns and still earn a spot in the provincials that will be held in Delta.
The U19B division, Oceanside Minor Softball was able to form two Rage rep teams, one coached by Ian Kellow and the other by Kris McNichol. Unfortunately there is only one spot up for grabs so both had to battle it out in a three-game series over the weekend.
It was the U19B Rage under coach McNichol that prevailed, winning two games to advance to the provincials that will be hosted by Nanaimo this weekend at McGirr sports fields.
OMSA is inviting all players, fans and softball enthusiasts to come out and cheer for the U19B girls this weekend in Nanaimo.
Last year, the U19B placed fourth and has a good chance of making it to the podium this weekend.
