Senior Team of the Year – Island Devils In 2004, a group of girls consisting of 2-19 year olds and a mixture of 17 & 18 year olds banded together, chose the name Island Devils, so as not to leave any community out, and headed to the ball field to play A ball. They worked hard, bonded with each other, respected what each brought to the team and were coached by Rick Merrifield and Russ Fanucchi.
Their first year in Midget A, they finished 4th out of 10 teams at Provincials. Some worked together while others pursued their course of post-secondary studies but they always came back to the Island to play ball. They have won Junior A Provincials for the last 3 years, each year attending Nationals winning the bronze medal in 2008, a year in which 10 of the original 14 players signed the roster. Injury prevented 2 of the original players from participating in the 2008 season.
They are a remarkable team, continuing to play together and be best friends well into their future years of competitive Softball – the 2008 Senior Team of the Year.
