Camosun women’s Chargers miss bronze medal

Quest University Kermodes won gold

The Camosun women’s basketball team lost the bronze medal match at the PacWest Championships ending their season in fourth place.

In New Westminster where the college tournament was held, the local Chargers lost both their games. The first one against Squamish’s Quest University and the second game against VIU for the bronze.

“We were nervous,” said player Kelly Young. “In the first half, we weren’t making our shots. We were hitting under 15 per cent.”

The Chargers came back in the second half, but couldn’t make up the lead that Quest had over them. Quest won 82-62. Camosun played strong in the bronze medal game, but things reversed at the end.

“We were winning the whole game until the last five minutes of the last quarter,” Young said. “They just pulled away.”

The final score was 51-43. VIU was the top tournament seed and Camosun was seeded second.

Quest University Kermodes won gold and Capilano University Blues took silver.
