Last weekend, the number four ranked Princeton Senior Girls Basketball team hosted a seven team tournament that included the top five single A teams in BC. Princeton advanced to the final by defeating Rossland. Angela Marshall was named “player of the game”. In the second game, Princeton defeated number two ranked Mulgrave. Julia Reichert was named Player of the Game. In the final, Princeton went up against number one ranked Cedars Christian School from Prince George. There was a large, enthusiastic crowd cheering the home town Rebels on. It was a fast paced exciting game which saw many lead changes. Princeton led 27-20 at half time and Cedars ended up coming out on top 56-53 when the dust settled. Great man to man defence was played by the Rebels. Ciara Bamford was named offensive player of the game and tournament all star for her amazing outside shooting from the 3 pt line. It was a fantastic team effort and all Rebels played key roles throughout the tournament. The team players are Angela Marshall, Julia Reichert, Ciara Bamford, Destiny Earle, Kyla Coyne, Logan Littlejohn, Briana Musgrove, Greyson Antonick and Samantha Simons.
Next up is the Okanagan Valley Championships in three weeks in Kelowna.
Thanks to all the supporters. It was a memorable tournament for the Rebels
