Two local players are heading to Saskatoon for a major national baseball tournament.

Recently, Team Alberta released its roster for the Baseball Canada 16U Girls National Championship in August.

Among the girls on the team are Okotoks players Abby Szilagy and Kamryn Kutzner.

Alberta is hoping to improve on its performance from last year when they beat Newfoundland and Labrador 8-3 to win bronze.

Szilagy, Kutzner and Team Alberta begin the national championships on Aug. 22 against Newfoundland and Labrador. The tournament runs until Aug. 25.
