Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

TheAlexan­der Galt Ban­tam Girls B Bas­ket­ball Team won the Bishop’s Col­lege School In­vi­ta­tional Tour­na­ment this past week­end and did it dra­matic fash­ion. The tour­na­ment fea­tured twelve girls’ teams from around the province as coaches Jar­rod Shar­man and Tara McCully had their girls in fine form on and off the court through­out the week­end.

The Pipers opened up the tour­na­ment with the host team and de­feated the girls from BCS 24-10. In their sec­ond game the girls from Galt de­feated West Is­land Col­lege in con­vinc­ing fash­ion 40-15. The young Galt cagers took on Stanstead Col­lege in the semi fi­nals and de­feated the Spar­tans 20-13 to ad­vance to the Cham­pi­onship game St. Ge­orge’s from Mon­treal. The Pipers found them­selves down at half time, but they found a lot of heart and de­ter­mi­na­tion in sec­ond half and came back to win the game 17-11 and cap­ture the gold medal as their par­ents, grand par­ents and friends cheered them on to vic­tory.

Cassandra Palmer was named to the All-star team while her twin-sis­ter; Kait­lyn Palmer was named the tour­na­ments Most Valu­able Player for fine of­fen­sive and de­fen­sive play and sev­eral clutch bas­kets down the stretch.

Spe­cial thank you to BCS and tour­na­ment or­ga­nizer Jeff Bray for invit­ing Galt to the classy and friendly tour­na­ment.
