Ladysmith peewee teams first, third at Fenton Memorial Tournament

A pair of Ladysmith teams had success at the Chris Fenton Memorial Tournament in Chemainus earlier this month.

Fenton was a model youth, who devoted his free time to umpiring within the Chemainus ball association.

“It is hard to believe 32 years have passed,” read a statement from his mother Rondeau.

“Chris’ annual memorial tournament renews my belief in the youth of today, they are the future, young and strong and fearless. Our family is grateful for the love and strength the tournament has provided us over the years. Thank you.”
