Softball Ulster begins 2022 season with Start-of-Season Blitz

Softball Ulster held the Start-of-Season Blitz on April 10 at Queen Elizabeth II Playing Fields in Lisburn. The Cubs, BSC, Sliders, Hawks, and Bucs were in attendance, as well as an entry from the Hippeties of Softball Leinster.

Both of Belfast Softball Club’s entries made it through to the afternoon playoff, as did the Sliders and Hippeties. Both BSC teams ended up in the championship game, with BSC’s “BSC 2” team winning the final over “BSC 1”.

BSC’s Nathaniel McQueen and the Sliders’ Kirsty Briggs were the tournament’s two MVP award winners.
