Two standout local softball players hope to keep the St. Clair Saints among the elite in OCAA play.
General Amherst high school product Allison Dufour and Massey high school product Naomi Beauchesne are set to join the Saints, who have medalled 13 times in the last 14 years at the OCAA championship.

“I want to contribute the most I can to this team and work together cohesively to pursue championship status,” the 18-year-old Dufour said.
The 5-foot-7 Dufour was an honour-roll student for four years at General Amherst and also helped the Bulldogs reach OFSAA in volleyball the past two seasons.
“Ally comes to us with an opportunity to pitch immediately following the graduation of Olivia Elliott,” Saints’ head coach Doug Wiseman said in a release. “She is a durable pitcher who will take the ball in all situations with a strong background from the Windsor Wildcats’ organization.
“Ally’s style and competitiveness will compliment Rya Cowan, but she can also play first base and outfield with some pop in her bat.”
