A big congratulations to the Nepean Blue Devils U17 Juvenile
Girls team for capturing first place at the first ever U17 Ontario
Basketball Association Provincial Championship. The team played a solid
tournament at the Toronto Pan Am Centre over the May 10-12 weekend.
After losing their first game to the #1 ranked York North Avengers, the
girls rallied to win the remaining games in their pool. The team’s
victories earned them a place in a semifinal game, which they won to
advance to the Championship - where they once again faced York North.
The Nepean girls were motivated and put forth a strong effort. The
score was close until some clutch shots and strong defense allowed the
Blue Devils to pull ahead and maintain a lead in the later stages of
the game. At the final buzzer, the team had earned a 53-41 victory. A
special thanks to Abby D, Kelsey, Shannon, Emily, Selen, Jaimee, Madi,
Abby E, Felicity, Marie-Soleil, Eliana, and Morgan for making it a very
memorable season for all.
