Tritons' Parker Wildeman takes a swing during the gold-medal game.

The White Rock Tritons U8 All-Stars have been named champions of the summer league, after taking home the gold medal last weekend, in a hard-fought game against the Cloverdale Spurs Sunday.

Heading into the final tilt at the North Delta U8 Summer League Tournament with a 5-0 record, the Tritons faced a talented Cloverdale team, and required some top-notch defense. Strong catching and throwing by AJ Abell, Tommy Hilditch, Theo Vellenoweth, Grant Reid, Parker Wildeman and Oliver Chin helped the Tritons keep the spurs to only six runs. Well-timed hits and strong base running by Ryan Connell, Lucas Saunders, Mason Kopelman, Matthew Hughes and Parker Wells helped give the Tritons the boost they needed to take home the gold, with a 10-6 final tally.

The Tritons’ summer All-Star season has now wrapped up; the U8 squad ended up with an 11-4-2 record over the past four weeks.
