Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

There’s a Cape Bre­ton con­nec­tion to a mem­ber of Canada’s un­der-16 women’s bas­ket­ball team that won its first ever gold at the FIBA Amer­i­cas women’s cham­pi­onship. Sarah Dono­van of Lon­don, Ont., is the daugh­ter of Dr. Keith Dono­van and Elsa John­ston Dono­van, both of Glace Bay. Keith was an ac­com­plished player with both Dal­housie and King’s Col­lege, while Elsa played at Mount Al­li­son and Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity. Both were all-Cana­di­ans dur­ing their play­ing days. Sarah Dono­van’s grand­par­ents are Ralph and Hen­ri­etta John­ston of Mar­ion Bridge and Bernie and the late Neil Dono­van of Glace Bay. Canada de­feated Brazil 72-71 in overtime to win the ti­tle on Sun­day in Pue­bla, Mexico.
