A North Vancouver Little League team scored a big win over the weekend, claiming gold in the 9/10 provincial championships.
The Lynn Valley Little League 9/10 all-stars earned a provincial banner with a 2-0 win over Vancouver’s Little Mountain Baseball Saturday at Vancouver’s Memorial West Park.

They then went 4-1 in round robin play at provincials, their only loss coming against Little Mountain by a 2-1 score. Lynn Valley then beat Trout Lake 12-2 in the semifinals to earn a rematch against Little Mountain.
“A great group of kids and parents made it all come together,” assistant coach James Lawson told the North Shore News. “Overall team depth and pitching depth were our biggest strengths.”
The team was led by head coach Chris Randall and assistants Jason Lyons, Sean Monahan and Lawson. Team members include Beckham Dickson, Braden Lawson, Caleb Nuttall, Carter Lyons, Cooper Woeste, Douw Van Heerden, Ethan Bookbinder, Finn Schieman, Jett Lyons, Josh Cutura, Luke Randall, Rory Monahan and Wesley Dykema.
