The North Langley Devils capped off a dominating season in historic fashion, winning the U10 provincial softball championship for the first time in the 21-year history of the year-end U10 tournament.

The Devils gave up just a combined five runs in the seven games in winning the gold medal at the tournament, which was held June 28 to June 30 at Squint Lake Park in Burnaby.

North Langley finished the season with a record of 41-5, medalling in four tournaments and winning gold three in of them.

And the team did so without one of their players, Katelynn Bartlett, who is battling cancer.

At provincials, the Devils beat the Ridge Meadows Pride 04 7-0 in the final, with pitcher Maya Moreno throwing six innings of no-hit ball.

North Langley had gone 4-0 in the round robin — they beat Ridge Meadows Pride 05, Langford Lightning, South Surrey White Rock Thunder and the South Delta Angels — before beating the Thunder 13-0 in the quarter-finals and North Surrey 11-1 in the semifinals.

The team is made up of Coaches-Trevor Moreno, Ellen Boundy and Steve Crone

Back row-Maya Moreno; Jessica Heutink; Kayla White; Allyson Bartlett; Julia Clauzel

Front row-Manami Ushijima; Raya Crone; Hayley Douglas; Sam Morton; Bella Sparrow
