The Foothills Fury Classic was in full swing over the weekend and saw a plethora of teams make their way to Okotoks to take part in the tournament.

Tamara Spencer, the Association President of Foothills Fury Fastpitch, explained how the tournament went.

"It went so good, it was definitely our best and biggest one yet," Spencer said. "105 teams, three provinces and a territory joined us. We had 1,200 athletes and overall, it went really, really well, couldn't have asked for a better weekend," 

Baseball diamonds were made readily available for the tournament which was needed to support the large number of athletes competing. Okotoks On Deck provided its seven baseball diamonds as well as the Fury's home diamond, and they even used eight other baseball diamonds across Okotoks.

"We had lots of players and parents in and around Okotoks for the weekend. We put on a bouncy castle and face painting, and we had hair braiding which was new this year. We have a lot of other events going on and not just ball. But we like to add and make sure we have fun as well," she said.

The Fury would pick up a few gold, silver and bronze medals over the weekend showing that fastpitch lives in the Foothills area.

"Our elite division won second in their division in a hard-fought battle in the gold medal game. It was the first year that we had an elite team and we showcased that here in Okotoks this year, so that was really exciting," Spencer added.

"I think we have grown; we were almost double in size from three years ago. Fastpitch is really taking off in the province and it's so great to be able to host that in Okotoks. Okotoks loves to do their events well, so it's a great place to have such a big hub for fastpitch not only in Alberta, but in Western Canada," she said.
