The Isfeld Ice 3A senior girls basketball team won the North Island championship Feb. 9-11 in Port Alberni. Isfeld was undefeated in North Island league play and their playoff opponents struggled to keep up with the high scoring and defensively tough Ice, who won 52-38 over the Wellington Wildcats of Nanaimo in the final.
The 20-3 Ice now has its sights on the Island Championship, which Isfeld hosts this weekend, Feb. 16-18. The winner earns a berth to the provincial finals March 1-4 in Langley. The second-place team needs to qualify through a wild card game Feb. 21. The opponent, venue and time is to be announced.
