VIU Women's Basketball team hosted the 2nd Annual Future Mariners Tournament for Grade 8 and Junior Girls back in December 2018.
It was a fantastic event with 20 teams and 30 total games over two days.
Teams from up and down the Island competed, including local talent from NDSS, Ladysmith, and Wellington.
On the grade 8 side, there were some great games considering the basketball season just got up and running. In the final a very talented team from Pacific Christian was able to take down the Islanders from NDSS.
On the Junior Girls side there we some tight games. In pool play we had Alberni, Belmont, Shawnigan Lake, and Brentwood finishes first. In the co-finals, both games were outstanding, and went down to the wire. Co-champs were Shawnigan Lake, who defeated Brentwood by 2, and the Alberni Armada who squeaked past Belmont by 4 in the other game.
Overall a fantastic weekend and VIU WBB would like to thank the coaches, parents, and players for their support.
Best of luck in the remainder of your season...have fun!
