Lacrosse and baseball association score gaming grants cash

Penticton Minor Lacrosse Association and the South Okanagan Minor Baseball Association have received Community Gaming Grants money from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

PMLA received $10,850, which will go towards equipment and purchasing jerseys.

“We’re very happy with it,” said PMLA president Dan Van Os. “(It will) continue to grow the game of lacrosse here in Penticton.”

Sandra Fleming, president of SOMBA, said the $3,600 they received will help pay for new hitting cage nets at Carmi Field.

“The netting isn’t sufficient. It’s unsafe to have the full team in the batting cage,” she said. “That is about $1,800. Also looking into possibly a new pitching machine and other items. Anything helps ,that’s for sure.”

In other SOMBA news, Brett Fleming has been chosen to play for Team B.C. in the midget under-18 nationals championships in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. Aug. 15 to 19.
