Congratulations to the SAMS boys’ basketball team for their first place finish at the Barriere Boys Jr. Cougar basketball classic tournament. The SAMS boys went undefeated throughout the tournament boasting a 4-0 record.
The stiffest competition came from the host team Barriere. It was a nail biting, stomach wrenching, give me grey hair early kind of game against the Cougars. But we held on for a one-point victory.
The Thunder also played very hard and proved they are be a worthy opponent. The Thunder came to compete and fought hard the entire game. Acwsalcta finished third respectfully, finishing with a 3-1 record. Tournament MVP was Christian Webber of the SAMS Grizzlies. Isaac Silver-Mack received his second consecutive All-Star award. From the Acwsalcta squad, Jonas Anderson also received an All-Star award. We now turn our attention to the upcoming zones tournament held this year in February at Tumbler Ridge, BC. Way to go boys!
