ESTEVAN - The U11 Estevan Elite girls softball team won the Highway 39 league on June 25.
Estevan was well represented in the softball league this year. Out of the seven teams that entered the league, three were from Estevan.
The Estevan Elite won the league in a hard-fought battle against the first-place seed Weyburn Rebels.
The Estevan Elite finished third overall in the league and went into the playoff weekend. The girls brought the Highway 39 league championship to Estevan for U11.
"The girls really came together this weekend, they played strong defensively when they needed, holding the second place seed to only two runs while putting runs on the board in both the semi-final and league final," said one of the coaches Dustin Hockey.
"The final game was a battle like we haven't seen in a long time. In the bottom of the seventh inning the Estevan Elite held the Weyburn Rebels to one run, defeating Weyburn in the 3 1/2 hour marathon game 17-16, to be crowned the Highway 39 League champs of 2022," Hockey added.
Estevan performed really strong in the league and during the playoff weekend. Only six teams out of the seven qualified for the playoffs and all three Estevan teams made it there.
