  2004 Summary  


The 2004 season was an adverse filled season for the Phillies Midget Girls. Situations arose forcing the girls to move up an age category and play Junior B at the Provincials. However the team never knew the meaning of giving up and just kept digging in and settled for a Bronze medal at Provincials.

The team lost their top 2 pitchers, Charlene Sinclair and Shauna Sawich, to season ending injuries, and elite athlete Jodi Clemons was selected to the Provincial Volleyball team and decided to commit to that team. These losses put some very large holes in the lineup, however Sara Barchyn and Shauna (knuckleball) Walker did an admirable job at assuming the pitching duties. The defence played well and always kept the team close. The hitting came alive in the Provincial playdowns until the semi final game. The team finished round robin play at 3-1 and then dropped games in the playoffs to Bruxelles and Steinbach. The high light of the tournament was coming back from a 3-1 deficit in the 6th inning to score an amazing 10 runs to mercy Bruxelles. On offence Charla Woods, Carly Keenas, Jodi Nespor, and Sheena McDonald hit with consistent authority. Defensively Britt Carter and Lauren Sawich made outstanding catches in the outfield, while infielders Randi Girard, Jodi Nespor, Charla Woods, and Carly Keenas were always solid.

Coach Leanne Sinclair was a positive influence and kept the girls upbeat and focused, while coaches Denis Woods and Ken Sawich are commended for keeping the team afloat and making the team competitive.

The coaches would like to also issue a special thankyou to Corrissa Martin, Candice Andries, Rylee Woods, and Sara Lefley for filling in during the season.

The Phillies Senior Open team got off to a slow start this season largely in due to the cold wet spring. By the end of May they had only played 3 games.
The Senior's season consisted of 30 games spread through the Manitoba Ladies Super League and tournaments in Portage, Winnipeg, and Stonewall, plus an additional 14 games in the Provincials and the Western Canadians, for an overall record of 22 wins 21 losses and 1 tie.
At the Provincials in Brandon July 15-17, the team finished round robin play with a 3-1 record and second place, giving them 2 lives in the playoffs. They eventually lost the Provincial final to Smitty's Terminators 4-1 thus earning the silver medal.
They then travelled to Richmond B.C. for the Western Canadian Senior Open Championship. After round robin play the Phillies were 3-3, beating B.C.#1 Victoria 7-4, Sask.#1 Carnduff 5-3,and Sask.#2 Moose Jaw 6-3, while losing 14-1 to host New Westminster, 7-5 to Calgary Thunder and 12-6 to Calgary Jags.

Three other teams also had 3-3 records, creating a tie breaker situation for the final 2 playoff spots. In the tie breaker Victoria broke open a close game which was tied 2-2 after 4, eventually defeating the Phillies 7-2.

The final standings for the Senior Western Open were:
1.Smitty's [GOLD]
2. Carnduff [SILVER]
3. Calgary Thunder [BRONZE]
4. Victoria Extreme
5. Calgary Jags
6. Phillies
7. New Westminter
8. Moose Jaw

The South Interlake Phillies Pee-Wees played a total of 32 games registering a record of 19 wins 12 losses and 1 tie. They participated in three tournaments which included a rain altered Westman Classic in Brandon, the International Classic, and the Phillies tournament. The Phillies captured Bronze medals in the 2 tournaments that were completed. At provincials the team finished their pool with a 3-1 record in a 3 way tie for first place. They came up a little short of gaining a berth to the Westerns by losing a close 7-6 game to Morden in the tie-breaker under the lights at John Blumberg. The team fought with the " rainy season" start and peaked their offensive play at Provincials with a dramatic increase in the team batting average. The coaches would like to commend the girls for their efforts and congratulate them on their successful season. We would also like to thank Elizabeth for her help with the stats and Taylor, Courtney, and Regan for joining the team when needed.
