The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - SPORTS - INTELLIGENCER STAFF

Al­bert Col­lege ath­letes had a busy week­end but it was all worth the ded­i­ca­tion and ef­fort to bring home three medals from the Con­fer­ence of In­de­pen­dent Schools of On­tario Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion ( CISAA).

Last week­end marked the end of the sea­son for U20 girls’ bas­ket­ball, U20 girls’ field hockey and U16 girls’ bas­ket­ball, and all three teams fin­ished the sea­son on the podium.

The U20 girls’ bas­ket­ball team was un­de­feated dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son and placed first in their di­vi­sion.

The fi­nal- four tour­na­ment was held last Fri­day in the Al­bert Col­lege gym­na­sium where the Pan­thers wel­comed Pick­er­ing Col­lege in semi- fi­nal ac­tion and ad­vanced to the gold medal game with a 35- 20 vic­tory. In the fi­nal game, the Pan­thers per­se­vered and walked away with the gold medal de­feat­ing Toronto Montes­sori School.

The U20 girls’ field hockey team trav­elled to the Oshawa Civic Sta­dium to play in the fi­nal­four tour­na­ment on Fri­day. The Pan­thers played Ri­d­ley Col­lege in semi- fi­nal ac­tion and won 3- 0.

The Pan­thers went on to play Toronto Montes­sori School in the gold medal match where they whipped TMS 5- 1 to wrap up an im­pres­sive un­de­feated sea­son.

The Al­bert Col­lege U16 girls’ bas­ket­ball team fin­ished first in their di­vi­sion and hosted the CISAA fi­nal- four tour­na­ment in Belleville on Satur­day.

In their semi- fi­nal game ver­sus Ap­pleby Col­lege, the Pan­thers won 51- 21.

The Pan­thers moved on to play Coun­try Day School in the fi­nal game at Cen­ten­nial Sec­ondary School.

Af­ter a very close game, Coun­try Day School se­cured the gold medal by a mere 13 points. The Pan­thers played with de­ter­mi­na­tion to the very last minute of the game and are proud of their un­de­feated reg­u­lar and play­off sea­son record.
