Despite concerns earlier this year, the Terrace Minor Softball Association (TMSA) pulled through another season with 20 teams taking part in this year’s softball league.
Three of these teams went to a tournament in Smithers June 11 and 12 and the bantam/midget rep team took a first place finish.
Both the squirt and peewee teams also proved their skill when both scored a second place finish.
President of the TMSA, Jenice Wright, said with brand new executives in charge this year the league is looking in a new direction to promote softball in the area. She said back in February there were doubts about keeping the league going.
However, Wright said she and the other executives decided not to take no for an answer and sought out help from local businesses and fundraised to keep the league alive.
There is a significant amount of children involved in softball, Wright explained, adding it’s important to stay active and enthusiastic about softball.
Wright says they are going to continue to work hard at keeping softball in Terrace going.
