The junior boys basketball team finished 3-2 at the provincial tournament in Langley. The boys won the North Islands and placed 2nd at the Islands.
Over the weekend the senior girls fought hard at the Christmas Tournament in Victoria. The girls were missing half of their team because of the Volleyball Provincials and so they called up five junior players. Beth Kerridge, Sara Cuddeford, Avery Henderson, Abby Gerow, and Lydia Paris. The team they lost to was Belmont but progressively got better every quarter. Their second game was against Sea Cove from the mainland. Another to tough loss. Final game was against Pacific Christian. Amazing improvement from the team especially defensively. The whole Senior Girls team are ready to come back into the new year stronger than ever!
