After an action packed weekend, Millet’s Pee Wee Hornet team placed third in Provincial Tier 1 A Championships.

Tier 1 A Provincials were held in Clive. This past weekend with participating teams being Jasper, Clive, High Prairie, Rocky Mountain House, St. Paul and Millet.

Millet’s Pee Wee team has had a very successful season going undefeated in CUB league play taking Gold at Tier 1 A Finals in Leduc. They then entered a tournament in Blackfalds the weekend of June 24, 25, and 26 and took the bronze medal.

Then on to Provincials starting the weekend of July 9 and 10 in Red Deer, the Hornets won all three games. The following weekend, July 16 and 17, they again won all three games in Rocky Mountain House putting them in Tier 1 to compete in Clive.

The team practiced three nights a week, often for four hours at a time, with only the darkness forcing them to stop. They were determined to work hard and win.

We are very proud of the kids for giving it their all in Clive, showing their talent and huge small town heart. A big thank you goes out to the coaches, parents, players, and Millet Minor Baseball for their time and support for our Pee Wee team. Way to go Hornets!
