“The girls were so excited with their performance,” said NPSS Athletic Director Matthew Lynn.

Celine Quigley was named tournament MVP, and Jesse Copes was named an All-Star.

The junior girls were in Quesnel for the Correlieu Basketball Tournament, winning first place. Mackenzie O’Brien was the tournament MVP, and Jordynn McPherson and Martina Scheck were both named to the All-Star team.

The junior boys were up in Fort Nelson at the Huskies Invitational Basketball Tournament. Just like both girls teams, the junior boys won first place in the tournament. They also played an exhibition against the Fort Nelson alumni team, which was a great test of their skills, Lynn said.

The junior boys are heading to Prince George this weekend for the DP Todd Basketball Tournament. The junior girls are also going to Prince George to play in the provincial qualifier.

The senior boys were also in Grande Prairie for the Pow Wow tournament. They faced some stiff competition, but held their own, winning bronze. Vaugn Oasay won MVP, while Mark Orcena was named a tournament All-Star.

In other sports, the girls curling team will play in Dawson Creek this weekend. It is a playoff game, and the winning team will win the zone championship and head to provincials.
