Sportlight: Coquitlam softballer leads her team to U17 national championship

Introducing “Sportlight,” which will feature sports achievements of Tri-Cities athletes and teams.

Coquitlam’s Noelani Livingstone led her Fraser Valley Fusion 06A all-star team to a Canadian championship last weekend in Saskatoon, Sask.

Livingstone was named the tournament’s most valuable player after she scored seven runs and finished with a .722 batting average.

The Fusion swept pool play, outscoring its opponents 31-4 over five games.

The team then beat the Ontario D1 Nationals in the final, 4-3.

The Fusion are comprised of players from the Tri-Cities, Maple Ridge, Langley and Chilliwack. Livingstone was joined by fellow Coquitlam players Kallie Caldwell and Alex Nazaroff, as well as Port Coquitlam infielder Claire Hill.

The national championship caps a run of success for the team that includes a provincial championship and an undefeated record in the U17 Gold division at the recent Canada Cup International softball tournament in South Surrey.
