SAMS Boys Basketball team finishes fifth in Provincial Zone qualifying tournament

The S.A.M.S boys’ basketball team recently attended the Provincial Zone qualifying tournament, held this year in Dawson Creek. They finished with a 2-2 record (good for fifth place).

This included two wins over Hudson Hope, a loss to eventual champs Northside (Vanderhoof), and an excruciating one-point overtime loss to Prince George. This loss to Prince George ended our hopes of advancing in the tournament.

Of the eight teams entered into the tournament, only the two teams who finished first and second qualify to attend provincials (this year it is held in early March in Langley, BC). Prince George continued their strong play and made it all the way to the final.

This just shows the true talent that the S.A.M.S boys possess and that we can compete with the best. We have gone over countless times all the “what ifs” if we had just come out on top over Prince George. Great times were had traveling there and back with our friends from Acwsalcta School, who also attended the tournament.

A great big thank must go out to all those who supported us through our fundraisers, which included pizza sales, bottle drives, 50/50 draws, and sub sandwich sales. Congratulations to Marcus Edgar for receiving a First Team All-Star Award, Isiah Edgar for receiving a Second Team All-Star, and Blair Hans for receiving the Most Sportsmanlike Player of the tournament. Next year we will be back to win the tournament in Vanderhoof, and qualify for provincials.
