2nd Year Paramedics in Finals at the 8th Annual Leeds and Grenville EMS Softball Tournament

Congratulations to the 2nd year second paramedic students who participated in the 8th Annual Leeds and Grenville EMS Softball Tournament in Lyn, Ontario this past weekend. Some of these students had never played softball before.

With 7 other teams comprised of paramedics, and dispatchers from Lanark, Cornwall, Ottawa, Kingston, Smiths Falls and Brockville, the students played through the rain in two games in the morning, then one in the afternoon to work their way into the finals.

After a hard fought final game, they lost by only 4 runs to the Lanark EMS team, a team which has dominated this event for many years.

This is a charity event, which the students raised money to enter a team, with this year’s proceeds going to a Leeds and Grenville paramedic who is currently off work due to illness.
