Vic Masters Champions
Congratulations to our Masters players who kicked off the new softball year for Eastern Raiders with gold medals in the B and D grades at the Victorian Masters Championships in June.
Our B grade team got off to a shaky start on day 1 with a draw and a loss, but bounced back to win their remaining games through the weekend. They faced off against Birralee in the grand final and got away to a strong start, firmly shutting out the opposition for the whole game. Final score 11:2.
Our D grade team started the weekend strongly, with only 1 loss for the 3 days to Gemsa Gems. Of course, that’s who we faced in the Grand Final but our ladies came out strong and shut them down for a convincing golden win 9:2.
It was a joy to see the Raiders Red out in force at Shepparton. Our playing groups had a fabulous time, with new and old friends. A huge thank you from all of us players to coaches and organisers: Jackie, Jacqui and Vicky, and to our Canberran and Frankston imports.
