Nakusp was host to a boys basketball tournament last weekend, with all the games taking place at the Nakusp Secondary School gym. Five teams from the region participated: Armstrong, Lumby, Mt. Sentinel, Trail and Nakusp.
Despite best efforts, the NSS Cougars weren’t able to secure a win during any of their four games.
“We are a younger team so we are progressing, we are learning a lot. It’s a tough competition,” relayed Coach Seamus O’Connor.
The tournament brought a calibre of competition Nakusp doesn’t often get to see. Participating were some AA teams from bigger schools where the sheer population difference allows the teams to draw from a much larger group of kids.
O’Connor added, “They’ve done a good job, but we aren’t there yet when it comes to playing above our level. These are a lot of young guys who have held their own and continued to try. They have put a good effort out every time. We only have three players that are in Grade 12, thus leaving the team, so we hope to do better in our next season.”
