The Calgary U18 Adrenaline have kicked off their season on a high note.
The girls softball team, which includes Drumheller's Brayden Peters, won all five of their games at the Ice Breaker Tournament in Kelowna, BC this past weekend.
"The girls were so strong at the bats and it was really convincing victories in pretty much every game," said Jody Schwartz, who helps with marketing and communications for the team.
The Adrenaline downed the U18 Edmonton Warriors 11 to 1 in the first game. They shut out Lm Stars of British Columbia 3 to 0 in game two, defeated the Cawston Koyotes 8 to 2 in the third game, got by Edmonton River City U18 12 to 9 and defeated crosstown rivals Kaizen Calgary 7 to 2.
The team placed eighth overall last year in nationals in Montreal as a U16 team and this year the group is feeling optimistic as a U18 team. 
"There are four girls that have joined our team from Red Deer that are making the trip down and training with the team every week, so that added a strong pitcher to our group in Riley Cassidy and some great fielders and they really added to the depth of the team," elaborated Schwartz.

She has high praise for number six Brayden Peters of Drumheller.
"We're grateful for Brayden Peters making the trip from Drumheller every week to train with the team and be a big part of the team. She's great at the plate for us and we're really excited about the season ahead," added Schwartz.
The Adrenaline will have a busy season ahead, participating in games across Alberta and into Great Falls, Montana this June. The girls will also be participating in the Calgary Women's Fast Ball Association this year.
