Everything Throughout the summer, while she will be playing in this new women's baseball circuit, Audrey-Anne Vachon will be part of the Les Jackie team.
Septilienne Audrey-Anne Vachon joins the Canada East League, the first elite women's baseball league in the country.
The Canada East League is a circuit bringing together the best Canadian 17-year-old players and more.
The 19-year-old athlete considers that she is setting the next milestone on her athletic journey.
Before, we played in the men's teams. We managed to have a provincial team in which I evolve since I was 12 years old. But there, we have an all-female elite league, she explains.
“[By joining the Canada East League] we have achieved a great goal. We continue to improve, but it is really a great step that we have taken. »
