The Skeena Wildcats junior boys basketball team had its zone championships in Terrace, Feb. 17.

With a win over Smithers Secondary and two losses to Prince Rupert’s Charles Hays team, the Wildcats came second place at the event.

Assistant team coach Geoff MacKay said he is very pleased with his team.

“We didn’t win zones, and we had hoped we would, but I can’t be happier with the way the boys performed,” MacKay said.

One thing MacKay was impressed with during the three games was the team’s execution of new defensive strategies it had been working on but had yet to try out in a game situation.

“It turned out to be a very good season,” he said, attributing a lot of the team’s success to support provided by players’ parents.
