Acwsalcta Basketball teams take second and third place in December tournament

The Acwsalcta School Basketball teams travelled out of town in December for a tournament in Barriere BC. The students were excellent representatives of our community.

The Acwsalcta players were making friends with their competitors and the spectators. People remembered us from last year and couldn’t help but cheer for us! The girls played two close games against Ashcroft and Princeton, coming out with the win in both games, advancing them to play in the gold medal game.

The girls played excellent basketball, and gave the Pemberton team a run for their money, but in the end took home second place. The boys won their game against Ashcroft, but had a tough time against Summerland. They played the Barriere team for third place and came out on top with a win! Both teams were happy with their excellent results, and were excited to return home to share their experience with friends, family, the school and the community. Thank you to Gerry Tallio for getting us there and back safely!
