SENIOR BASKETBALL PLACE 4TH IN BC:
Prior to March Break, our Tigers basketball Team finished off their season placing 4th at the AA BC Championships. This final four appearance adds to the storied success of our basketball teams over the past twenty-two years. The York House Tigers have reached the final four at BCs 15 times since 1999. The Tigers defeated Selkirk from Kimberley, BC, in game one and then defeated the Okanagan Champions from Kalamalka in Vernon, BC, in game two. In the semi-final, the Tigers played a rematch of the Vancouver Sea to Sky Final, taking on a very talented Mulgrave team. The Tigers played great, leading much of the second quarter and then trailed by just 3 points after three quarters. However, the depth and size of Mulgrave in the 4th quarter built an 8pt lead behind the amazing play of Grade 10 star and tournament best defensive player, Eva. In game 4, a depleted Tigers team battled hard but did not have enough to defeat SMUS from Victoria.  

Some individual Tigers were recognized at BCs as tournament all-stars. Congratulations to Avery (Grade 12) named second team all-star and to Mila (Grade 12) named first team all-star.

Langley Christian defeated Mulgrave in the Championship final.

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
