Thanks from the Hazelton Mystics

Sponsors and donors help make hoop dreams come true for Gitxsan team.

The Hazelton Mystics would like to sincerely thank the below sponsors for their continued support in getting us to the 59th annual All Native Basketball Tournament held in Prince Rupert. Below is a list of team expenditures and sponsor/donations received for this year’s tournament.

It is with great pride that we wish to announce our third-place finish in this year’s tournament. Without your continued support, attending this tournament would not be possible.

It means a great deal to us all to be able to attend this tournament and represent our nation.

Thank you to our coaches, George Simpson and Emlyn Dodd, and manager, Darlene Simpson, for your dedication, hard work, enthusiasm, and support leading up to and including the tournament week — we truly appreciate your efforts and all that you do for us!
