The White Rock Bantam AA won the Valley of the Champions in Kelowna earlier this month.

The team took the title in Kelowna at the tournament – one of the largest summer baseball tournaments in the province, with more than 60 teams from Alberta and B.C.

White Rock battled the heat and a team from Okotoks, Alta. in the semifinal before clinching the win by defeating Abbotsford 17-7.

In round-robin play, the team went 3-1, beating Spruce Grove, Alta. (16-3), Vancouver Community (18-8) and Prince George (8-5). The team’s only loss came against Rutland (15-2).

The team is set to play seven games locally in the next two weeks in hopes of qualifying for the Bantam AA provincial championships, which is slated for July 31-Aug. 4 in Burnaby.
