BC 16U baseball team misses medal round

Schroder leads Team BC to strong finish at 16U baseball nationals

Fruitvale native Allison Schroder and her 16 and under Team BC girls baseball squad just missed the medal round at the 16U Canadian Girls Baseball championship in Vaughan, Ont. Sunday.

BC dropped its opening two games against Quebec, 5-2, and Manitoba, 2-1, before bouncing back with wins over the host team Vaughan, 17-5, and a 15-3 victory over Saskatchewan.

However, BC’s 2-2 record left them outside the top four after round-robin play. Quebec at 3-1, defeated Nova Scotia in the semifinal 11-1, and Alberta doubled up Manitoba 10-5 in the other semi to advance to the final, where Quebec went on to beat Alberta 4-1 and claim the national title.

In the placement matches, Schroder earned the win on the mound in a 6-2 BC victory over Ontario for fifth place, while Manitoba won bronze with a 5-4 win over Nova Scotia.

Schroder pitched four solid innings, giving up two runs on two hits, four walks and nine strike outs, as Team BC scored two runs in the fifth inning to break a 2-2 tie on their way to the win.
