The Waterloo Gold Bantam Select Ghosts wrapped up their 2019 season with a 25-1 record and Gold in their provincial tournament August 24-25 in Brantford. In a strong showing, Waterloo outlasted 26 teams from across Ontario, and avenged their only loss of the season in an exciting 7-3 victory in the gold medal game against St George. In addition to their 1st place finish at provincials, the Bantam Select Ghosts also took home Gold in Forrest Glade (Windsor), Burlington, and Etobicoke, and Silver in London. Potent offense (.563 Team Batting Average and 329 Runs Scored), tight defence and lights out pitching (76 Runs Against) throughout the season attributed to the team’s overall success, with contributions from team members up and down the lineup. This fantastic group of 15-16-year-old girls gelled together as teammates and friends to put together one of the most successful Waterloo Ghosts Select seasons to date.

In early July the team Volunteered its time at the Foodbank of Waterloo to help sort and pack more than 4500 pounds of food donations for those in need throughout our community. In conjunction with their food sorting efforts, the team also organized a fundraiser that resulted in a cash donation of $700.00 made directly to the Foodbank of Waterloo Region which translates to 2100 meals being provided to the community.
