What a bunch of champions. We were split up today and played two games. One V Benalla and one V Porepunkah. To have 18 kids out on the baseball diamond with 3 regulars away is a fantastic effort. Nice job parents.
We worked on our skills and all played awesome today. Award winners were Erin, Tahalia, Oscar, Hunter, Linkoln, Josh and Makayla.
