Galt’sse­nior girls bas­ket­ball team com­peted at the pro­vin­cial bas­ket­ball tour­na­ment at Ecole Sec­ondaire St. Lau­rent on April 8, 9, 10. The team was ranked 10th out of 16 teams go­ing into the cham­pi­onship and fin­ished in 5th place. In Game 1, Galt beat Col­lege Laval while in Game 2, the team lost to the host team and even­tual pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onship win­ner. In Game 3, the Galt girls beat Col­lege Saint Paul. The tour­na­ment was clearly a battle for sec­ond, as the team that won was head and shoul­ders bet­ter than the other teams and is one of the premier teams in the coun­try. It is un­for­tu­nate that Galt met them in the sec­ond round as the coaches felt the team matched up well with all the teams who fin­ished 2nd to 4th. “Cer­tainly I am thrilled with the re­sult: we com­peted hard, peaked at the right time and have clearly learned

they went to Mon­treal. from mis­takes made ear­lier in the sea­son. We have some young tal­ent that is now on the radar screen of post sec­ondary schools and that is great for our play­ers in the next cou­ple of years to fol­low,” com­mented coach Steve Dunn. “Fam­ily mem­bers in ev­ery­one’s home gave us all the time and sup­port sys­tem to work, im­prove and grow. The sea­son was truly a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort be­tween our bas­ket­ball fam­ily and our fam­i­lies at home!” he added.
