SENIOR BASKETBALL AT AA BC CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Tigers have a rich history of success at the AA BC Basketball Provincial Championships. If you are not familiar with that history, see below.

This year, the Senior Tigers look to add to that success by competing at the Langley Events Centre March 2-5 against 15 other top-ranked teams from throughout BC. York House enters the tournament as the #3 seed in the field of 16 but will face the Kootenay champions from Kimberley in game 1 and likely the Okanagan zone champions from Vernon’s Kalamalka Secondary in game 2. Reaching the final four is always a team goal and if the Tigers achieve that they will likely face off with a very talented Mulgrave team.

Game 1 YHS defeated the  Kootenay zone champion, Selkirk Secondary 73-26

Game 2 will be Thursday, March 3 at 3:30 vs the Okanagan champions, Kalamalka from Vernon
