Dauphin, Canada

When the 2018 Baseball Canada Cup gets underway in Moncton/ Dieppe, New Brunswick, Dawson Tweet will be there.

The 16-year-old from Russell will represent Manitoba at the Championship, which features all of the best young baseballers around our Country that are under the age of 18.

"It's a really big honour to me," said Tweet. "I'm super proud to be a part of the program."

"I wasn't really expecting to make the team," he added. "There were some really good athletes out there. It could have gone either way."

Although he didn't really think he was going too, Dawson does believe there are a few things that were a part of him making the team.

"I think my attitude and commitment," he said. "My parents did a great job of getting me to all of the practices and everything. And, once I was there, I worked extremely hard at all times."

Tweet and the rest of the Manitoba squad will play five preliminary games before the playoffs take centre stage.

"I think we can compete for sure," said Tweet. "The team did a pretty decent job at the Canada Games last summer, so there's no real reason we shouldn't be able to compete this go around as well."

The Championships will also give Tweet the opportunity to impress the many scouts that will be in attendance, and he's confident he can do so.

"I'm expecting I can perform as I have been lately," he said. "It should be a lot of fun."

Heading into the future, Tweet hopes to play baseball collegiately in the states.

The Parkland Vipers Volleyball Camp is set for August 30-31, and the registration deadline is on Wednesday, June 20.

"Registrations have started heating up in the last week or so," said Ted Rea, Coach. "But, we're still looking for some more in both age categories, and specifically girls in grade eight and nine."

The camp will feature two groups:

Grade 6 & 7 - 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Grade 8 & 9 - 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The fee to take part is $75, which includes both sessions and a T-Shirt.

Former Canadian women's team members Tammy Silworsky, and Kathy Preston will be the two instructors.

"If you played U-12 with the Vipers this past year, or if you're just looking to learn the game, this is a great camp," said Rea. "It's a great opportunity to get some practice in before the fall season begins. Volleyball is such a great sport, and this is going to be a great camp."

You can register your child today by giving Ted a call at 648-4433, or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You can also head to Parkland Source for Sports here in Dauphin, and pick up a registration form.

After a very successful go at it last year, the Dauphin Kings are back at it with their Ag Project.

This year, the organization is going with Canola, and it’s located a half mile north of Vermillion Sportsplex on the left.

Stay tuned to hear from the Kings tomorrow about the project.

The Dauphin Kings once again hosted a world-class golf tournament today at the Gilbert Plains Country Club. 

Over 150 players teed it up for the right to call themselves the 2018 Kings Par 3 Extravaganza Champions, but only four made it happen to that extent. 

Trevor Fox who won multiple closest to the pins was on the Championship team. He was joined by Dan Scott, Dave Campbell, and Lloyd Campbell. 

They shot a 10 under, 44.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are heading back to Winnipeg with a 1-1 preseason record.

They fell to the BC Lions last night, 34-21 in their final tuneup game before things start counting for real on June 14.

Jonathon Jennings threw for 182 yards and one touchdown for BC.

The Blue & Gold who were primarily playing with second stringers led 13-12 at halftime but were outscored 15-2 in the third quarter which sealed the game.

Alex Ross may have earned himself an Opening Day start, after going 10-13 for 78 yards for the Bombers, but we'll have to wait and see.

The Bombers now open their season on June 14 against the Edmonton Eskimos at Investors Group Field.

It wasn't as dramatic as last time, but the Parkland Source for Sports Midgets picked up a win none the less last night.

They beat Ste. Rose, 9-8 at Vermillion Sportsplex.

When the two teams last hooked up at the Sportsplex last week, the PSFS Midgets came back from an eight-run deficit to win the ball game.

When Jayden Jubenvill makes the jump to Jr. A hockey, it will come with the Dauphin Kings.

The Kings drafted the crafty 14-year-old 26th overall at the MJHL Draft last weekend.

"It definitely feels good that a team wanted me," said Jubenvill. "It's been my dream to be drafted into the MJHL. It's an honour especially because it's by the hometown team. My family and friends can come out and watch.'"

Being just 14-years-old, Jubenvill knows making it to the MJHL might be a few years away, but he has a good plan in the meantime.

"I'm going to be working as hard as I can on and off the ice," said Jubenvill. "Hopefully one day I can make the Kings roster."

"I need to work a little on my shot," he added. "And, my mindset to stay disciplined and not take stupid penalties."

Jayden feels he impressed the Kings at their Spring Camp by showing his speed, energy, and his physicality.

It's set to be a very busy day in Dauphin tomorrow with two different baseball tournaments set to go.

The first is the "Grand Slam Jamboree" and all the games take place at the DMCC Grounds, Diamond 4, 5 and Brewer Diamond.

"We're celebrating Baseball Manitoba's 50th Anniversary," she added. "It's going to be a great day."
