It was a nice way to end the season with a kids vs. parents game. The parents came suited up, determined and ready to play. The kids (young ladies) were there to have some fun and a few giggles. The parents took an early lead but the kids rallied back ending the game in a 7-7 tie in the 6th inning. Unfortunately, after a Snapchat playback review that was also shared on Instagram of a questionable parents inning at bat, an illegal batting position was used which nullified 2 runs for the parents. This gave the kids the official win of 7-5. Sorry parents, maybe next year? Congratulations parents and kids for a game well played!
Both RHMSA U12 Select teams participated in Forest Glade’s (Windsor area) “Pink-Out the Park” softball tournament, in memory of Forest Glade’s Novice All Star Select assistant coach DJ Lafreniere who passed away in 2016. In their first out of town (2) day tournament, the “Pink” Extreme played hard and represented Richmond Hill by securing and winning the bronze medal. Congratulations coaches, players and parents!
5 games and a 15 hour day at the softball diamond, these girls played hard, dug deep and won the silver medal where 12 teams competed in the OSSTA Etobicoke Select Tournament. This U12 Select team understands that medals are won at practice and tournaments are where they pick them up. Congratulations coaches, girls and parents!
The Richmond Hill U12 Girls Select team, Green Extreme is on a mission this season. Coached by James Bland and Monica Bland at the OSSTA Select home hosted tournament at Richvale Athletic Park on June 25, they competed against awesome teams from Whitby, Unionville, Barrie, Oshawa and Oakville. Through teamwork, execution of skills, and most of all fun, the Green Extreme team came out on top and captured the GOLD medal!
_Gold medals are not made of gold. They are made of hard work, sweat, determination and a hard to find trait called 220,…110% effort 110% of the time. Congratulations girls, coaches and parents!
A very special thank you to the RHMSA executive member volunteers, dedicated coaches and the best parents on the planet who came out to support these girls. GO RICHMOND HILL!
In their first tournament of the season, the U12 Select girls, the White Diamonds coached by Steve and Tonia Sarkissian proudly represented Richmond Hill in our home tournament at Richvale Athletic Park on Saturday, June 25. Despite being a younger team for this division, the girls played tough. Going into their final round robin game they knew the standings were close. With perseverance and tenacity and snazzy good looks in their white sunglasses, they hammered out a win to advance to the bronze medal game. The White Diamonds placed fourth out of eight teams. Congratulations to the coaches, girls and parents!
