Local product Bo Hedges and the Scarborough Tigers gained a gold medal finish at the Canadian Wheelchair Basketball League National Championship on Sunday.

The Tigers beat the Gladiateurs de Laval 70-57 in Montreal to win the division 1 championship.

“I’m having as much fun as I ever had on the court,” said tournament MVP Patrick Anderson with the Tigers.

“To do it with some friends in Jesse McNally, Bo Hedges, and Tyler Miller, and some new guys, it was just a really fun mix of players. It was great to be back in the Canadian club league again after a long break.”

The loss ends a streak of three consecutive titles for the Gladiateurs.

The Tigers were undefeated in round-robin play before beating Centre d’integration a la vie active 71-41 in the semifinal game to earn their spot in the finals.
