FNC U12s take silver in Timberjacks Baseball Carnival

FAR North Coast was among the medal winners in the annual Timberjacks Friendship Baseball Carnival in Lismore.

The FNC under-12s finished second on the ladder to Brisbane Metro and claimed a silver medal at the end of the three-day competition.

Brisbane Metro went on to win the under 12s after going through the tournament undefeated.

In the playoff for the silver medal, FNC took on Coomera Cubs and won 9-8 in a nail bitter.

FNC had mixed results across the four age divisions.

They entered two teams in the under 14s age group with a second and fourth-placed finish.

The under-14 Jacks finished second in the pool stage and lost against Brisbane North in a battle for third.

Brisbane Metro won the under 14s division after defeating Coomera 5-2 in the final.

The under-16s were not as lucky finishing fifth on the ladder.

They didn't play their best baseball but put in a good overall team performance.

Sydney team, Ryde Hawks, took out the under-16s after going through the tournament undefeated.

FNC under-20s finished fourth.

The tournament was one the most successful in its 25-year history with 32 teams from Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sydney attending.

FNC teams will now look forward to the Queensland State Championships in September.
