18U Beavers take eight straight to open season

May 7, 2024 | 12:48 PM

From the opening crack of the bat this baseball season, the 18U North Battleford Beavers have been off and running, having won eight straight games to open their spring 2024 schedule.

The Beavers have swept back-to-back four-game weekends to start the year, with double-header victories in Moose Jaw and Assiniboia opening weekend. That was followed by two more in Regina this past weekend, taking two-straight over both the Regina Buffaloes and Regina Blue Jays to sit atop the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League AA 18U (SPBLAA 18U) standings.

Assistant coach of the Beavers, Peter Frey said the team’s ability to hit the ground running has been rewarding to see, as it continues the upward trajectory they’ve been building. They improved from a rebuilding year as a young team two years ago, to finish middle of the pack in eighth-place last year, before now ascending to the top of the standings.

“It’s not surprising, but it’s great to see,” Frey said. “It’s been a building process, and we knew three years ago if the team would stay together they would have a very competitive team [today]. We built for that all along, we’ve gotten better every year, and the boys want to do whatever it takes to keep winning.”
