Junior Lynx Win

Joe Shea Sportsmanship Award

at Nationals

NDG Parent Reporter

The Junior Lynx were awarded the Joe Shea Sportsmanship Award at the Junior Canadian Nationals in Coquitlam, BC. Tournament organizers issued the team the Joe Shea award for the teams ability to display strength and good team spirit throughout the tournament. Head coach Mike Latsis was honoured that his team had been selected to win this award and was very proud of his players conduct given difficult circumstances.

Offensively for the Lynx there were two outstanding achievements. Both Alexander Latsis and Bradley Lis D'Alessandro became the first Lynx players to hit two homeruns in the same game at a Canadian National tournament. Alexander hit his two homeruns in the game against the British Columbia representative from Whalley and Bradley hit his two homeruns off of the Prairie team represented by Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Other achievements include: Alexander  Latsis leading the team in hitting with a .308 batting average, including a double, two homeruns, and three rbi's;  Bradley Lis D'Alessandro going three-for-five with four rbi's in the game against the Prairies; Gregory Duran hitting a homerun against the Atlantic team from Glace Bay; Sean Griffin having two multiple hit games, and both first time Lynx players Sean Wolfe and Isaac Perez rising to the challenge and each contributing three hits a piece during the tournament.

The Junior Lynx have much to be proud of this year. They started the year knowing they had a difficult road ahead of them but under the tutelage of coaches Mike Latsis and Sheldon Morgan they proved up to the challenge. Congratulations to the Junior Lynx players, coaching staff, and parents for showing true competitive spirit in the face of overwhelming obstacles.
