The KW Kolts returned home from the Eastern Canadian Fastpitch Championships in St. John’s, Newfoundland with gold medals to show for their efforts. Joining the Kitchener contingent were Elmira’s Adam Brubacher and Evan Buehler.
After rolling over Nova Scotia 18-1, the Kolts played their closest game against host Waterford Valley, winning 4-3 after extra innings.
The Kolts proceeded to defeat Newfoundland’s VP Rock 14-7 and CBC 16-9. Back-to-back wins over Ontario’s Highgate Rock squad – 7-0 and 3-0 – put them in the final against Waterford Valley. There was no need for extra innings this time, as the Kolts hammered home seven runs while allowing the host team none.
In addition to his gold medal, Buehler also picked up an individual award as the best shortstop among the peewee boys.
