Karter Romeo winds up for the throw as he takes part in the U16 provincial boys softball championships in Clearwater last weekend. He was one of three Clearwater youth, along with Justin Sutherland and Adam Borrow, who played for Merritt during the event.

The Merritt/Clearwater team placed sixth out of seven in the round robin, but ended the playoffs in third spot, taking a bronze medal.

Clearwater’s U12 team, the Stingers, finished the round robin in fourth spot but were knocked out by Surrey Storm Juniors, and so ended up in fifth place out of nine teams. The team played a total of six games before the tournament, where they competed against teams that often played two games per week during the season.
