JUNIOR BASKETBALL: PCS, Oak Bay girls tops on the Island

Victoria’s ongoing battle of Grade 9 girls basketball teams has come to an end as city and Island champs Pacific Christian won’t be attending provincials this week. 

Pacific Christian defeated Oak Bay in the Grade 9 girls city championships last week and the Island Championships the week before that. 

Both schools qualified for the two Island berths at the provincials in Kelowna, March 4-6. 

This year junior B girls basketball, often consisting of Grade 9 teams (with some Grade 8s), has its own provincials, separate from the junior A provincials.  However, PCS have elected to end the season there, as the junior squad’s four Grade 9s will join PCS’ senior team at single-A provincials in Sparwood, March 9-12.
