The Swift Current 11U AAA 57’s captured the championship title at the annual Regina Legasse tournament over the May long weekend, marking the first time since 2015 that a team from Swift Current has won the event.

The 57’s started the tournament in the round-robin stage, going 1-1-1. Despite this beginning, they gained momentum heading into the semi-finals against the Estevan Brewers. The semi-final match saw an explosive offensive display from the 57’s, who secured a convincing 15-5 victory. Avery Christianson and Blake Reiter were standout performers, each launching home runs out of the park to bolster their team’s lead.

In the final, the 57’s faced the Regina Wolf Pack, a team that had bested them in round-robin play. However, the 57’s were undeterred and ready for redemption. In a thrilling contest, the 57’s emerged victorious with a 14-8 win. Jaden Gader hit a grand-slam home run that significantly contributed to the team’s offensive surge. Cord Fry started on the mound, pitching a solid three innings, and Jace Powell closed the game to ensure the victory.
