Robb Road Wolves win hoops tourney

The Robb Road Wolves won the Elementary Basketball Jamboree at Vanier Secondary School on March 5. The team of 15 Grade 7 boys played a total of four elimination games before narrowly defeating Queneesh in the final.

Robb Road's Matthias Smith proved to be an incredible defence player, helping shut down Airport in the first game. Valley View was unable to come up with a solution to stop the line of Logan, Thomas, Joe Ben and Gabe in the second game.

The third game was dominated by Robb Road’s power line of Ian, Cassius, Christian, Alistair and Matthias. The final game was extremely close and thanks to the clean play and constant determination of captain Thaskani and his linemates Liam, Mason, Liam and Jacob Robb Road was able to pull ahead and seal the win.

It was clear during timeouts and halftime that coach Pavola had instilled a positive team climate and willingness for her players to give their all.  Thanks to all the teams that competed in a hard-fought tournament and to Larry Street for organizing the event.
