6th Annual Celebration of Achievement!

 Vauxhall, AB – 


It has became a tradition of the Jets to celebrate special achievements throughout the 2016/2017 season.  A great meal with several presentations and awards was highlighted by the Pennies for K’s fundraising presentation.  The Kitagawa’s presented a cheque for $19,500 matching donations and topping it up with a golf tournament donation of $24,500.00.   Special thanks to Brian and Susan Van Uden and Yukio and Barbara Kitagawa for providing dinner.

2017 was a tremendous success both on and off the field.  The Jets finished the spring with a 31-10 record, 3 Tournament Championships (including the 2017 BOW), 2nd place finish and a 3rd place finish.  All 9 graduating seniors are set to move onto college baseball programs (including 4 to NCAA Division 1 programs) and 5 Jets spent time throughout the year with the Canadian Junior National Team (currently 4 Jets are still with the CJNT).  Please see below all the award winners from last night:
