The Comox Valley ruled in the 10-team Mark Isfeld junior girls basketball invitational tournament this past Friday and Saturday as Vanier met Isfeld in the championship game.
Vanier defeated Ballenas (Parksville) and Claremont (Victoria) to advance to the final while Isfeld defeated Carihi, Kwalikum and injury-riddled Vanier in the final.
Other teams participating included Wellington (Nanaimo), Alberni (Port Alberni) and Dover Bay (Nanaimo). Both Vanier and Isfeld displayed good skills, hard work and sportsmanship throughout.
Thanks to the Isfeld parents for running the concession, the volunteer scorekeepers and referees and others who helped out. Best wishes to Isfeld Ice and Vanier Towhees junior girls in their upcoming playoffs.
