U16 Silver finish at Slam Classic ๐Ÿฅˆ

Sometimes offence comes to the basketball party. Sometimes not. But for these girls defense owns the gym that hosts the party. And so it was again this weekend.

Always, all effort, never quit. Grace and Mak are constant persistent, pesky ball pressure, Lou and Emery the glue that fixes everything, Avery doing whatever asked. Carys, Hannah, Nyomi, Samantha, and Syrena putting it all out there; rebounds, intense defense, getting better every game.

Our first game, early Saturday; 65 โ€“ 35 over London. Then Barrie, a U16 OBL X entry, solid on all levels. A โ€˜pay to watchโ€˜ worthy game. Back and forth, quick, physical, the kind of game we all hope for, and scares us too. Won 40 โ€“ 34. A total step up defensive effort from everyone and great choices and execution on offense. Our final game on Saturday was a 45 โ€“ 22 win over Nepean.

Sunday, Samantha was out with injury and Lou was fighting sickness but we still defeated DCBA 47 โ€“ 30. A game much closer than the score shows, asking multiple minutes and many different tasks from all players.

That set us up for gold game with Wolves Elite from Thunder Bay. They are big, strong, and also a โ€˜Dโ€™ first believer. A great effort from all but we just ran out of options in the end; losing 34 โ€“ 30. Won on all levels but the score.

Parents โ€“ again โ€“ were awesome. Rachel and I cannot say enough about the effort, positive energy, and never quit attitude every player brought this weekend. Winners all!

Next event for us is our last OBL weekend April 15/16.
