Naramata Lightning wins district championship

Lightning set to compete for provincial championship after winning 2012 under-14 girls districts

Heidi Robertson’s three-run triple helped the Naramata Lightning defeat the Cawston Kobau Koyotes 10-3 for the 2012 under-14 district girls championship.

Madison Foster pitched a strong game for the Lightning, who won five of six games during round-robin play. The Lightning bats were on fire and the team played solid defence to down Cawston on June 17. Also competing in the district championship was Kelowna, Penticton, Summerland, West Kelowna and Vernon. The Lightning will now compete in provincials hosted by Richmond July 6 to 8. MVP winners were Tianna Apps, Madison Foster, Sydney Foster and Monique Mooijer.

The team is having a fundraiser at the Naramata Pub on Canada Day at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the pub, which includes a buffet dinner, karaoke entertainment, a silent auction, and a loonie shuffle featuring some excellent local wines. All proceeds to help cover the expenses for the girls to go to provincials.
