New Level 3 Umpires

It gives me great pleasure on behalf of our entire membership to congratulate Emma Jerome Smith and Mark Taylor for attaining their Level lll at the U16 A provincial championship this past weekend in Leduc. Mark was awarded the plate in the winner-winner game with Emma working third base. That game sends the winning team directly to the final. Emma was awarded the gold medal plate with Mark working first base. I was the DUIC at the tournament but had no influence on the final assignments as I removed myself from those selections. I watched with great pride as these two young umpires quietly and unknowingly became leaders of the crew, a crew in which they were they youngest by a dozen years.

It is because of their hard work and dedication that they were able to achieve what they did. As well Mark has been invited to be part of the crew at the U16 A Canadian championship in August here in Calgary. Emma was also invited but will be in Surrey play in the U21 Western. That tournament will be a Shouldice so come down and watch some games.

A fantastic feat by both of them, and again congratulations.

Jim
