Former Ryley residents make it to the Team Canada slo-pitch roster
When former Ryley residents, Kiera Lyons and her cousin Kearstin Solberg were selected for Canadian Women’s Slo-Pitch Border Battle’s final roster to play in the 10th Annual Border Battle in Kitchener, Ont., it didn’t come as a surprise.
The sport has been in their families for a long time, and both Lyons and Solberg have had some amazing feats over time.
“My parents and older brother were very much into sports, ball included, so I just naturally fell in love with sports,” Lyons said. “I’ve been at the diamonds since I can remember, watching, playing . . . my summers for the most part revolved around ball.”
