Mark Isfeld Secondary School is hosting its Senior Girls Basketball Invitational this Friday and Saturday (Jan. 22-23).

Games begin at 10:15 a.m. Friday with the host Isfeld Ice playing Nanaimo (doubling as a AA North Island League game as well). The G.P. Vanier Towhees play their first game at 1:45 p.m. Friday.

The eight-team tournament includes Isfeld, cross-town friendly rivals Vanier (who won the Brentwood tournament this past weekend and are coached by coaches whose total ages are almost 200 years old!), B.C. #1 A-ranked Credo Christian from the Lower Mainland, Alberni (AAA), Shawnigan Lake (AA), Brentwood (AA), Carihi (AA) and Nanaimo District Secondary (AA).

The Ice senior girls placed third in the competitive annual Victoria Police tournament, defeating Lambrick Park from Victoria, losing to host and eventual champions Saint MIchael’s University school 48-41 and defeating Rick Hansen Secondary (Abbotsford) for third place in another exciting game.

Grade 12 players Chelsea Lachapelle (captain, tough defence, rebounding and hitting threes), Sydney Kuhnert  (outside shooting and TSN highlight drives), Delaynee Skene-Pedersen (clutch shooting and team first attitude), Kyla DeWitt (tough defence and incredible streak of treys), Maddi Eaton (inside the paint tough baskets rebounding and defence), Maggie Snider-Harris (hustle, defence and good passing) and Aleah Ashlee (all-round skills and leadership) led the Ice while Grade 11s Emma Huechen (tough defence, rebounding capturing loose balls and improving shooting), Rachel Hesselgrave (defence and calmness under pressure) and Takane Sudo (highlight reel end-to-end rushes) all made important contributions.

Despite two injuries (one upper body and one hand) the Ice rebounded from a tough loss in the semifinals to win a close game against a tough Lower Mainland opponent. Aleah Ashlee was selected to the first all-star team and coaches Ashlee and MacKinnon survived stressful games and mall shopping by the girls.

The Isfeld Senior Girls Invitational tournament is a great showcase for senior girls basketball, highlighting the results of all the years the girls have practised and improved their skills.

The coaches thank all the previous basketball coaches the girls have had here in the Valley for all that they have done for them. Come out and enjoy some first-rate entertainment at Mark Isfeld this Friday and Saturday.
