Tigers Win Vancouver City Challenge

It was a stellar weekend for our Tigers Basketball squads.

A big CONGRATULATIONS goes to our Junior Tigers who won the Vancouver City Challenge defeating the #1 team in the VSB league, Sir Winston Churchill, 41-27 in the final. They played terrific basketball building a 25 point lead with all-star performances by Ishira and Michelle.

The Senior Finals was expected to be a highly contested battle between Notre Dame and our very own Tigers. YHS jumped to a 9-0 lead to start the game. They cruised to a 77-55 victory in what might be considered an upset as ND was seeded higher than us. Big CONGRATS to Ashna, named Tournament All-Star; Emma, named Best Defensive Player; and Maddy, named Tournament MVP (who took home a $500 scholarship as well). A big Congrats to Brianna for dominating the 3pt shooting contest.

Last weekend was also a great weekend for Tigers Basketball: The Juniors defended their ISA Championship (this is their 7th gold in a row and 12th of the last 14 contests); the Grade 8s headed to Kamloops for the Sahali Tournament, and brought home gold; and the Seniors had a tough first match against a very strong Duchess Park team, but won the rest of their games for a 5th place finish.

In the coming week, the Tigers host CHS on Tuesday: Grade 8s play @ 3:45, Juniors play @ 5:15, and Seniors play @ 6:45. On Thursday the Tigers host Notre Dame: the Seniors play @ 3:45, the Grade 8s play @ 5:15, and the Juniors get the late shift @ 6:45.
