The Dynos Ju­nior A girls bas­ket­ball team won two out of three of their games to win sil­ver at their home tour­na­ment.

The Dynos in­vited Lin­den, Hanna and Prairie Chris­tian Academy (PCA) to play in a round robin tour­na­ment last week­end. Coach Ele­sha Wright is happy with the team’s progress.

The Dynos started their tour­na­ment ver­sus PCA and walked off the court with a 22-19 win.

They faced a tough Dr. El­liott School of Lin­den, and fell by three points .

In their fi­nal game, they faced a peren­ni­ally strong Hanna Hawks team and eked out a 35- 34 char­ac­ter win.

“It was a real nail biter,” said Wright. “The girls played pretty well, I’m very proud of them, it was a nice way to end the tour­na­ment.”

This was enough to win se­cond place. Coach Wright is happy with the ef­fort the team is mak­ing. She says the team has made strides in mak­ing bet­ter passes and mov­ing the ball quickly, open­ing up easy bas­kets.

“They are start­ing to gel now which is great,” she said, as the team heads down the stretch.

She says the team has a tour­na­ment at PCA this com­ing week­end and they head to zones at the be­gin­ning of March.
