Palermo Athletics earn berth in 2009 ToC

Palermo Athletics earned a berth in the 2009 ISC II Tournament of Champions with a convincing 10-2 win over the Wyevale Tribe in the ISC II final of the Canada East Travel League playoff tournament Sunday afternoon at beautiful Lancaster Park in downtown St. Catharines.

Chris McColl picked up the win over Jason Giffen to earn Palermo a trip to Quad Cities in 2009. It will be Palermo’s fifth consecutive appearance at the ToC, dating back to Chippewa Falls in 2005.

Both teams will be taking part in the 2008 ISC II ToC. Palermo is in tough in Pool E with Ashland, OH Stockpack, Carp, ON I4C Victory and Winterset, IA A’s while Wyevale has the uneviable task of taking on top ranked Bakersfield, CA Taylor Farms LumberKings in Pool A along with Lloydminster, AB Dodgers and Memphis, TN Posse.
