In the midst of perfect season, the U15AAA Eastman Wildcats softball team recently attended the President’s Tournament in Saskatoon and came away from the event as champions with four wins and zero losses. The late-May tournament saw them go head to head with teams from Saskatchewan and Alberta.

At the time of this writing, the Wildcats boast a record of 16 wins and no losses.

The Wildcats come from all over the Eastman region, but two players come from Niverville: Danyel Heppner and Cheyenne Scott-Cooke. Other local girls on the team hail from La Broquerie, St. Malo, St. Pierre, Mitchell, Oakbank, and Landmark.

This is Dwight Heppner’s third year as head coach for the U15 team, and his fifth with the Eastman Wildcats organization.

“This group of girls is extremely competitive and fun to coach,” says Heppner. “We are built on a very strong defensive game, a diverse hard-working pitching staff, and a balanced offense.”

The U15 isn’t the only team to see recent success. The U13AAA girls also performed very well at the President’s Tournament in Regina and made it to the semifinals. The U13 team also features a Niverville player: Cameron Heppner.

Rheanna Falk of Niverville plays for the U17 team.

All Wildcats home games are played at the Friedensfeld Community Centre and there is still lots of time left in the season to get out and enjoy some Wildcats softball.
