The Burnaby Mountain Lions’ first venture to the B.C. AAA high school senior boys basketball championship was a memorable one, but for the wrong reason.
In their opening round game at the Langley Events Centre on Tuesday, the Lions were defeated 59-50 by the Caledonia Kermodes from Terrace. It was the first time Burnaby Mountain had made it to the tournament since the school opened 13 years ago.
Atdhe Hajrizi was Mountain’s top scorer with 21 points. He also collected 13 rebounds.
The loss relegated the Lions to the consolation side where they were to face the Pitt Meadows Marauders on Wednesday afternoon.
