Mid West softballers won multiple events at the recent State and Skins tournaments, with both junior and senior players claiming prizes.

Geraldton’s Batavia Blaze won the under-16s championship, beating Joondalup Outlaws 6-5, and had four players named in the all-star team. Blake Azevedo, Fletcher Harrison and Eli Etherton were stand-outs.

The under-14s Blaze team also won their division, 6-1.

Jordan “JJ” Gould and Owen Scardina were two of their better players. Suiside made the under-18 grand finals but the match wasn’t able to be played due to rain, meaning they finished runners-up for the second year in a row.

Rams won the seven-team Skins against Perth team Vikings, the fifth win in eight grand finals the team has played, with 16-year-old Jay Chapman winning grand final MVP. Several local players played with metro teams, including Tori Nicholson with Vikings.
