Local teams showcase skills in weekend basketball tournament

It was quite a successful weekend for our local seniors, as both the boys’ and girls’ teams went undefeated throughout the entire tournament.

It was a hard fought start to the tournament for the NPSS senior girls’ team, who defeated Dawson Creek in a back-and-forth game, 44-34. Following their challenging first game, the ladies cruised through the remainder of the weekend tournament, beating Fort Nelson 48-12, Grande Prairie Comp 60-26 and finally defeating the NPSS junior girls 65-45.

Much like the senior girls, the senior boys were a dominant force throughout the two day tournament, going undefeated to emerge as champions.

The boys opened their tournament against the Grande Prairie Comp’s junior boys' team, winning 73-47, followed by a 100-49 victory over Fort Nelson, and then easily getting by the senior squad from Dawson Creek in their final game.

NPSS athletes were recognized following the conclusion of competition, as tournament MVPs were awarded to Miles Savard and Pam Sandberg, both students at North Peace Secondary.

The weekend was a good warm up for the senior boys, who will now shift their focus to Prince George, where they will play in another basketball tournament this weekend.
