|Alberta champions win bronze medals|
The Lutes Timber Mart Badlands Bombers picked up bronze medals at the Canadian intermediate triple A baseball championship held in Calgary last week.
The Bombers placed third in the six team tournament with a 9-8 extra inning win over Quebec last Friday morning.
In order to win, the Bombers had to rally from a three-run deficit going into the bottom of the seventh and final inning just to tie the contest.
After preventing Quebec from scoring in the top of the eighth inning, the Bombers went to work to load the bases. Bryden Sillito then connected with his bat to bring in the winning run.
Quebec scored one run in the third, three in the fifth, one in the sixth and three in the seventh inning on 12 hits. Full Story >

Brooks native Travais Anderson has come a long way from officiating football games in Brooks.
Anderson was on the sidelines July 18 as a minor official for the first home game of the Canadian Football League expansion Ottawa Redblacks.
“Walking out of the tunnel on to the field for the game was amazing. The stadium was sold out (24,300 spectators) There was a buzz of excitement in the brand new building that was so happy to finally have the CFL back in Ottawa. Walking onto the field we could see the teams, for CFL greats, and commissioner Mark Cohon. Even the Prime Minister was in attendance. Oh Canada was followed by a fighter jet flyby, then the game was on,” said Anderson. Full Story >
