Hawkes bags bronze at fastpitch nationals

Chilliwack's Dallas Hawkes pitched and hit for the Surrey Storm, helping her team to a 7-1 record and third place in Brampton, ON.

Chilliwack’s Dallas Hawkes and her Surrey Storm teammates earned bronze medals at the 2014 National U-16 Girls Fastpitch Championships, held Aug. 13-17 in Brampton, ON.

Hawkes and company started strong last Wednesday with wins over the Quebec Rebelles 3 and Manitoba Smittys.

Hawkes pitched three innings in an 18-3 whitewashing of the Rebels, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks.

She didn’t see any action in a 5-4 win over Manitoba, nor a 2-0 win over the Guelph Gators Thursday morning.

She played left field in Surrey’s fourth game as they demolished the overmatched Prince Edward Island Ravens 20-4. Hawkes went 2-4 at the plate with two runs batted in.

The playoff round started Friday with Surrey falling 3-2 to the Quebec Rebelles 1. The Storm bounced back with a 7-5 win over the Oakville Angels Friday afternoon, sending them to the bronze medal match against the host Brampton Blazers.

Hawkes was back in left field for that one, going 1-2 at the plate in a 4-3 win.

Hawkes is enrolled in the softball academy at Abbotsford’s Yale secondary school.
