Tyla Lee – current ASDC athlete, and her sister Jade Lee – former ASDC athlete and current softball athlete at Iowa Western Reivers, have made it to the final cut for Team Alberta Softball for the Canada Summer Games held in Winnipeg in 2017. They're carrying 18 players until the spring, and then cutting to 15. Of particular significance, the tryouts were open to players born in 1996, and Tyla just had her 17th birthday- born in 1999. Tyla would be the youngest athlete on the Canada Games team if selected in the spring of 2017. Everyone here at ASDC - Central are very proud of these girls, and will be rooting for them all the way.
