The Agassiz elementary secondary school (AESS) senior girls basketball team earned second place in B.C. at the provincial tournament at Duncan Christian school over the weekend.

Agassiz senior B-ball girls win second in province

After an exciting one-point semifinal win, AESS girls lost to Langley Christian and took home the silver trophy

After edging out the No. 2 ranked Mulgrave Secondary (from North Vancouver) 60-59 and advancing to the provincial championship game last Friday, the Agassiz elementary secondary school (AESS) senior girls basketball team earned second place in B.C. after a loss to Langley Christian the following day.

The dominant No.1 ranked Langley Christian Lightning beat the Eagles 83-37 at Duncan Christian school Saturday afternoon—both teams undefeated in the tournament leading up to the final game.

Taylor Lees was the player of the game for Agassiz and Hannah Exley was selected to the first all-star team for the whole tournament.

In Friday’s semi-final battle against Mulgrave, Sydney VanderWyk was selected player of the game for her aggressive defence and three-point shooting.

Exley led the way in that game with 33 points and four clutch free throws in the last two minutes.

Down 59-58 with 10 seconds remaining, Alyssa Lawley made two free throws to put the Eagles up 60-59 where Agassiz defence held the score for 10 seconds until the final buzzer.

Agassiz defeated Kelowna 50-45 in their first game of the tournament last Wednesday before beating Cedars Christian 76-53 on Thursday, which led them to the semifinals versus Mulgrave.

The Langley Christian Lightning had a strong tournament, winning 78-4 over St. Andrew’s, 66-26 against Pemberton and 74-50 in their game with Credo Christian on Friday leading up to their match against AESS in the championship game.
