The TDSSAA 2016 Girls' Softball season is winding down and we couldn't be more sad to see it go. The girls did well competing in games throughout the spring. Successful teams had the opportunity to move on to Regional and City Championships. The TDSSAA would like to thank all those coaches, athletes and parents who were involved with making this season a great one! Play Ball!
On May 31st, Leaside CI and Etobicoke CI took to the diamond to settle the City Championship at Dieppe Park. The girls were full of pep as they took to the field taking part in unofficial cheer offs from the side lines. At the bottom of the 7th inning Leaside CI tied up the game leading to an exciting international tie breaker. The last at bat would start on 2nd base in the final inning. Etobicoke CI thought they had won it when they ran home early in the inning, but Leaside's tight defense limited them to score only once. In the end, Leaside pulled ahead by scoring twice. Congratulations to both teams for participating in such a well matched game. TDSSAA was impressed by the athleticism and skill both teams showed throughout the game. We hope to see both teams progress next year!
Congratulations to Leaside CI for being the 2016 TDSSAA Softball City Champions!
