Congratulations, Jack Yaremko!
Congratulations to Jack Yaremko for having a spectacular spring and summer season this year!
Jack played peewee AA with Burnaby Minor during the spring, made a fantastic appearance at the Jevon Clarke peewee tournament in May, earning himself the top batter award. He was also awarded a spot on the 13U Team BC selects roster later that month.
Suffice to say, Jack’s summer was busy: he played peewee AAA with the Burnaby Braves. Unfortunately, the team didn’t make it to the finals in provincials, although they were 3-1 in the round robin, but the other coaches were impressed with Jack’s play and he was offered a chance to join the provincial champions, Richmond City, for a tournament in San Diego.
The Burnaby Braves still had success: they were named Team BC for the 13U National Western Canadian Championship and ended with a 4-1 record, losing to the eventual champions, Coquitlam-Moody. Jack had a great tournament and again, impressed the opposing coaches enough to have them invite him to join Coquitlam-Moody at the 13U National Championships in Repentigny, Quebec. The team had a great showing, finishing with the silver medal.
Congratulations again to Jack for his outstanding accomplishments this year in baseball!
