Cascades win CCBC championship title

Former Gibsons Minor Baseball Association All-Star and current University of Fraser Valley Cascades pitcher Evan Petersen helped lead the Cascades to their first ever Canadian College Baseball Conference Championship.

The CCBC National Championships were held in Kamloops from May 9 to 12. The Cascades took the hard route to the final by dropping their opening game 8-4 to Calgary. That forced the team to win four straight games.

The final was a rematch of last year’s combatants with the Okanagan College Coyotes being the reigning champs. The teams split the first two games and in the third the Coyotes had no answer for the Cascades’ pitching, defence and hitting.

The game was called in the seventh inning due to a mercy rule, with the Cascades winning 13-2, taking the CCBC championship title for the 2018-2019 season.

This is only the third year of Cascades baseball and Petersen has managed a Gold, a Silver and a Conference All-Star.
