What a year it's been for the Langford Lightning softball organization.

What a year it’s been for the Langford Lightning softball organization.

Three of the associations teams left provincials with medals around their necks. The Langford U12 B girl’s team finished in first place proudly earning gold medals.

The team’s provincial tournament was held in Langley July 13 to 15. The Lightning won the gold medal game against the North Shore Stars 3-1.

It was a scoreless game until the sixth inning when the Lightning scored two runs. The Stars secured a run in the seventh inning and then the Lightning scored another in the bottom of the seventh.

The game was the fourth game of the day for the LIghtning.

“It was exhausting because each game was an hour-and-a-half long,” said pitcher Savannah Purdy, 12.

The U12 team had an exceptional year, winning 50 of its 56 games. They also earned four medals in various tournaments.

Some other notable provincial wins include the Langford Lightning U18 boys team’s silver medal win and the U14C girls team earning bronze.
