Parksville Rage readying for fastball provincials

Boys of summer play at a higher level in the home stretch

Parksville Rage catcher gets the call after tagging out a Nanaimo Diamonds runner in U18 fastball play in Parksville this week.

The Parksville Rage Midget girls fastball team played their opponents from Nanaimo well — up until the final two innings.

The loss, said co-coach Juan Rodriguez, is not surprising, considering the Nanaimo Diamonds play a level higher than his girls in order to get games.

“We always play a level higher, to get us better,” he said. “It gets us ready for the provincials.”

Pitcher Emma McNichol had a good game, lasting most of the game and keeping things close until pain and fatigue set in.

Catcher Alena Holyk had a good game — both on offense and defense — for the Rage.

The local squad is off to the Under 18 girls fastball provincials in an automatic qualification, July 6 and 7 in Cloverdale.

The team reminds folks that they’re holding a fundraising golf tournament this Saturday at 1 p.m. For more details, contact coach Chris McNichol at 250-954-7510.
