Mounties Qualify for World Series in Florida!
Posted July 2, 2013
Vancouver Mounties have accumulated enough points and in conjunction
with their strong showing in the Washington State Championships have
qualified to play in the 15& Under Freshman Elite Division of the
USSSA HS World Championships in Kissimmee Florida. The World Series
event is held at Osceola County Stadium which is home of the Houston
Astros Spring Training.
The Mounties have a 11 - 4 - 1 record
down South this year and along with their 3rd place finish at the State
Championships have finished 2nd at the Kitsap County Classic and 1st
at the Spring Classic Tournament. This would be a great opportunity for
the team as they have always been treated fairly down South and the
format for the tournament has already been announced as it is an 8 day
tournament that starts with pool play and then goes into double
The Mounties Coaches, Players, and Parents
will certainly have to weigh this great opportunity but it not only
comes with a monetary price it also comes with a bigger price as it
falls on the same weekend as the BC Minor Provincial 15U Championships
in Kamloops. The Mounties still waiting for the Provincial Format and
Schedule will look carefully at all their options.
