Basketball team returns from off-island victories

  • Feb. 26, 2007 3:00 p.m.

Submitted by Claudette Lavoie-The Queen Charlotte Secondary girls basketball team returned triumphant from Terrace and Prince Rupert Monday morning, having won three of their four weekend games.
The team couldn’t travel to the zone tournament because of the ferry schedule changes and lack of hotel rooms in Prince Rupert during the weekend of the All-Native tournament, so coach Donna Rhindress organized a number of matches this past weekend to give the girls some game experience.
The team is mostly made up of grade 8 players. They played very well, defeating Thornhill in their first game 26 to16. They then played Skeena and defeated them 32 to 25.
On Saturday they had a rematch against Thornhill and the islands team really found their game, defeating Thornhill 32 to 6. They travelled back to Prince Rupert on Sunday to play Charles Hayes Secondary and lost in an exciting overtime game 44-42.
All players – Kelsey Lore, Natasha Thompson, Penny Hans, Ayanna Rhindress, Meighan Wilson, Sydney Coles, Missy Thompson, Page Marrs, Jastra Alton, Alina Mearns, Kayleigh Madore, and Jennifer and Leah Friesen – contributed to this amazing trip by representing their school and community with excellent play, good sporting behavior and positive attitudes. Thank you to parents Jayliene Cline, Claudette Lavoie and Jessica MacKenzie for their assistance on the trip.
