The Thrifty Foods Orcas from Parksville captured their third gold medal in the past four years in softball at the B.C. Senior Games in Kamloops last week.

According to Hugh Bohm, the Orcas beat Kamloops 13-10, Prince George 13-12, Vancouver 5-5 and Prince George 16-1 before losing 14-6 to the Comox Valley team.

The Orcas said Bohm, “rebounded from that loss and outplayed Comox 14-7 for gold.

“The new eight-field venue was simply superlative and the games from accreditation on to the medal ceremony were the best organized the team has experienced,” he said, adding “the standard bar has definitely been raised for the games next year in Langley.”
