The Coyotes have been busy this fall. With the change of the seasons it signals the half point of the fall schedule. The Coyotes have faced Thompson Rivers University and the University of Fraser Valley Cascades in September along with a games against the local PBL Okanagan Athletics and a flurry of games in the Fall World Series.
“We have had a chance to see two teams from our conference so far and we will see two more in VIU Mariners and Edmonton Collegiate. We will have a really good idea of where we are at and what we need to do this off season. It is starting to become clearer with more and more games what players will need to improve upon this winter,” says Head Coach Geoff White.
The Coyotes are coming off a tough loss in the 2019 CCBC Championship best of three series and looking to get back to the final again with a different result. The team has returned several key members including senior catcher Jake Fischer, pitchers Chris Wyslobocki, Wyatt Hummel, Austin Brown and Jesse Poniewozik.
“We have returned a good portion of our pitching staff from last year which led the conference in many categories, ” adds White, “however we still have lots to work on and improve and we have some very talented new faces to our program that will add significant depth.”
The Coyotes and Okanagan Athletics will host their annual Fall Invitational Tournament this coming weekend at Elks Stadium. Some of the best U18 programs in Western Canada will be in attendance. The recent 2019 Premier Baseball League (U18) Champion North Shore Twins will be the pre tournament favourite. Follow us on Twitter for up to date scheduling and announcements.
