The Abbotsford Minor Fastball Association hosted the District 8 girls playdowns at Exhibition Park last weekend, and local teams showed well.

Three teams punched their ticket to provincials – the U14 B, U19 C and squirt B squads.

Additionally, Abbotsford’s U18 B team is also bound for provincials by virtue of the fact they’re hosting the B.C. tourney in their division, to be held July 4-6.

The squirt B team clinched their bracket with a 12-1 win over the undefeated Langley Extreme ’02, thanks in part to a strong pitching performance from Alicia Newman with Caitlyn Klassen behind the plate. Brooke Dejonge was solid at second base and very hot with her bat all weekend.
