The White Rock Renegades 2000 girls fast-pitch team has been named the 2014 provincial champion.

The team took home the title following a 4-3 victory over the Richmond Islanders this past Sunday on Vancouver Island.

A two-out single in the bottom of the seventh inning scored the winning run as the Renegades captured their first provincial championship.

“I am very proud of these players and everything they accomplished this year,” head coach Natasha Dypchey said in a news release. “They have all been working hard since September when the team was formed and their hard work paid off.

“Being provincial champions was goal number one.”

The Renegades were undefeated in the 13-team tournament, outscoring their opponents 62-7 in eight games.

Richmond Islanders took home silver and Surrey Storm 01 won bronze, while Pride 2000 finished fourth.

The ’Gades are set to host more than 20 teams from across the country for the U14 Canadian Championships Aug. 6-10 at Softball City.
