Placentia's Jordan Pomeroy eyes spot on national softball team
PLACENTIA, NL — Jordan Pomeroy is one step closer to following in the footsteps of other softball players from Newfoundland and Labrador who have represented Canada internationally.
Corner Brook hosting boys events; girls playing in P.E.I.
Newfoundland and Labradors under-13 and under-14 soccer teams will soon be looking to replicate — or surpass — the success achieved by provincial U15 and U16 sides in Atlantic age-group championships last month.
And a couple will be doing so on home soil.
Corner Brook is host to the boys U13 and U14 championships beginning today. The girls U13 and U14 events are in Charlottetown, P.E.I.
Each four-team competition will see each team playing three round-robin games, with the top two teams in each age group advancing to gold-medal games on Sunday.
In June, Newfoundland’s U15 and U16 boys teams won gold medals in Atlantic championships, while NL’s U15 girls captured silver and the U16 girls finished third.
