ANCASTER – Softball seems to be getting bigger and bigger in Canada year after year, and for Six Nations’ own Jazzy Powless and Dani Smith it was a very rewarding summer.
The two local girls were on the Ancaster Blizzard Midget team, coached by Chris Brownell, Dean Smith and managed by Ginger Smith.
The Blizzard played a few games in and around Ancaster and even in Hamburgh, New York. The end of the season consisted of playing in the eliminations tournament in Port Perry, where they placed first. From there they went on and played in the Provincials and received a Silver Medal, and Jazzy Powless won MVP of the tournament.
By placing second in the Provincials, they then earned a spot at the Eastern Canadians which were held in Prince Edward Island. In P.E.I. they played the championship against Nova Scotia and defeated them 6-1.
The Blizzard played hard and earned a gold medal in the Easterns. In the tournament, Jazzy Powless won player of the game and also won M.V.P of the tournament.
