“It is unfortunate that things have turned out the way they have with UVIC folding,” says Head Coach Geoff White, “however it goes to show the strength of our 5 teams and league to be able to draft a new schedule and work with each other to maintain our league schedule. It will be a tough schedule in 2011 for all teams, and shows the resiliency and strength of our Canadian College Baseball Conference.”
