Saskatchewan men’s softball team wins Canada Games silver

Team Sask won a silver medal at the Canada Games in Winnipeg

Saskatchewan’s men’s softball team won a silver medal at the 2017 Canada Games in Winnipeg in early August.
The all-star squad rolled through the round-robin games with an undefeated record to qualify for the playoffs. An 8-7 win over Quebec in the semi-final on Friday, August 4, put Saskatchewan into the gold medal game against Ontario.
The championship bout was a rematch of an earlier quarter-final game in which Saskatchewan lost 11-1 to Ontario.
The final was a lot closer, as Saskatchewan fell 4-1 to Ontario.
Still, a silver medal was a big accomplishment for the team, which boasts several members of Canada’s national junior men’s softball team among its lineup.
Delisle has six players on the provincial squad, including: Evan Morris, Reid Dubkowski, Clayton McKenzie, Jordan Valcamp,, Dane Arntsen and James Shirley.
Warman has two players: Justin Laskowski and Craig Kosmynka. Saskatoon contributed three: Sheldon Beirle, Jordan Hudson and Justin Kapeluck. Prince Albert players Nick Basaraba and Matthew Kutnikoff; Debden’s Rylan Couture and St. Louis’ Nick Patrick round out the roster.
