Why wait until March for basketball playoff madness when you can cheer on the local 49ers all this month right here at home as they vie for a berth into provincials.
Ladysmith Secondary School is hosting the Junior Boys (grades 9/10) District Championships which starts later today and continues through to Saturday.
The 49ers finished atop the league standings and have a first round bye so they won’t take to the court until 11:30 a.m. on Saturday in the semi-final game.
A positive result would then land them in tomorrow’s final at 5:30 p.m.
Late next week the Senior Girls basketball team, comprised of Grade 11 and 12 student-athletes, will host the AA North Island Championship from Feb. 8-10.
Thirsting for even more local hoops? Make sure to make it out Feb. 15-17 as the Senior Boys basketball team hosts the AA North Island Championship also at LSS.
