It was a great trip overall for the Vauxhall Academy of Baseball Jets as they were once again able to play games south of the border against some quality teams. The trip saw the Jets take on teams from Idaho, Utah, Missouri, California, Nevada, and Illinois and they were scheduled to play Great Falls at the end of the trip, but the weather didn’t allow for it.
“It was good. It was pretty uneventful, which is what you want on a trip. We had pretty good weather — we had one day in Vegas that wasn’t great — but great weather, we had good competition, we played in beautiful baseball parks, we did end up losing two of our games due to weather on the way home in Great Falls, but we were able to pick up a couple of games against PBA (on Monday). We’ll pick up Great Falls this Friday on our way back down south,” said Les McTavish, head coach.
The Jets picked up 13-2 and 7-4 wins over Twin Falls to start the trip before moving on to Utah where they beat Skyline 7-6. The trip then moved to Las Vegas where the Jets dropped the first game 10-6 against Christian Brothers from Missouri.
In the second game of the tournament, the Jets took on De La Salle from California which resulted in a tough 10-7 loss.
