This past weekend our KLSPL Tournament team broke the curse and won the Pointe-Claire Ladies Tournament with an exciting 5-3 win over Montreal. Three stars of the weekend go to: 3rd Star Val Weller- She made the trip in from Toronto to represent Kirkland! Val's veteran leadership was a huge part of the teams success! 2nd Star Melissa Dykeman- A rookie on the team but played like a veteran. Mel's bat and big defensive plays were a great addition to the team. Well done rook! 1st Star Lise Begin- Lise was absolutely phenomenal on the mound, pitching all 35 innings over the 5 games. Lise bounced back from a line drive shot back at her in the semi's and led the team to victory! This weekend was a complete team win! Congrats; Shawna, Lindsey, Lisa Marie, Vinny, Val, Lise, Melissa, Shelley, Laura, Debbie A., Steph & Sue!
