Vikings Junior Wrap

Vikings Junior Wrap: February has been a great month for our junior teams with Mac & Simon's u11s leading the way. The u11s have been the big improvers since the break, hitting & running the bases well with the pitchers doing an excellent job. The team has had 3 wins in a row, scoring 43 runs and only giving up 5 - nice job! Gordon's u9s are swinging the bats well with recent wins over the Bandits 15-4 & the Black Bears 13-2. Thank you to the u7s who have been helping out the u9s (Hamish McGregor and Bentley Masters) and a 'well done' to Imogine Masters who was the u9s 'player of the day' on Saturday. The u13s, after some close games and some that could have been closer, were back in the winners circle on Saturday. They play their final midweek game tomorrow night and still have an outside chance of playing finals if they continue their good play. The u7s have been enjoying themselves and have been making some impressive plays along with some great hitting. I'm hearing good things from opposition coaches & supporters about how the u7 Vikings are playing the game - nice job u7s. Our u15s have made big improvements over the season with recent wins over Rebels and a come from behind one run win over the Bears. With 7 wins the team is sitting in a well deserved 4th place. The big thing about the u15s has been improvements in making the routine outs, playing catch, not pitching walks and importantly looking to hit the ball when batting. They have been doing well what I like to call playing "Vikings Baseball".

Only two weekends to play in the regular season - remember "the harder your train, the luckier you get" (Babe Ruth).
