Caledonia Secondary’s senior girls and boys basketball teams were successful last weekend, with the Kermodes senior boys going undefeated at the Kermode Classic here in Terrace and the senior girls winning two games on the road in Prince Rupert.
The boys beat Houston Christian, Nechako Valley, Smithers, and Mt. Elizabeth decisively – the closest margin in any game was 20 points – to win the annual event. They’re now busy preparing for a four-day tournament in Kamloops in the new year.
The girls headed to Prince Rupert for a play day, where they beat the home team Charles Hays Rainmakers twice – 55-46 in the first game and 68-55 in the second. High scorers were Kaisa Mikkola and Khali Pelletier. Player of the weekend went to Casey Twiname for her “unbelievable tenacious defence”, said coach Arnie Pelletier.
The team is hosting a basketball camp for youth next weekend – the first one was held last weekend and hopes to have some games against ladies’ teams during the break before their next tournament in Vanderhoof early in the new year.
