Our Bantam Basketball team wrapped up their season with one of their best games of the year. Playing in the top half of the draw at the Grade 8 Provincial Championships, LFA out-lasted Brookswood 58-42, to finish off the tournament in seventh place.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable game to watch, with every player on the team contributing. It was fitting for them to play their best basketball of the season in the last game.
The girls kicked off the tournament with a gritty victory over South Kamloops that required a clutch 3 pointer with seconds remaining. The win pitted them against the #1 ranked team, WA Fraser. If not for a tough first quarter, the game was remarkably even, but the Angels couldn't claw back from the early deficit.
Individual awards went to Mia Garcia '24, Clara Juca '24, Shannon Stelling '24 and Bella Heffring '24, who all walked away with Player of the Game Awards. Additionally, Clara was awarded a Provincial Honourable Mention for her skill and effort throughout the tournament.
