The Stanley Humphries Secondary (SHSS) junior girls basketball team finished fifth in its first tournament of the year at J.L. Crowe in Trail this past weekend.

“Overall it was a great tournament,” said coach Kim Matson. “I thought the girls played well throughout the tournament. They have an awesome attitude. No matter who they come across they play hard.”

In the Bulldogs first game, the team fell 37-14 to Rossland. Leeza Perehudoff led SHSS with eight points, while K.C. McKinnon paced Rossland with 12.

SHSS struggled against a strong press from Selkirk (Kimberley) and lost their second game.

In the battle for fifth place, SHSS overcame a slow start to defeat Grand Forks 29-23 led by 15 rebounds from Michelle Matson, and 10 from Rachael Tebulte.

“It was good. We won our first game of the season,” said Tebulte. “We played really well. Our defence was strong.”

Coach Matson agreed that the team had a strong effort.

“The girls played very well,” she said. “They worked very hard. We also had a big height advantage and that helped us with rebounding. We probably out-rebounded them by double and we were able to capitalize on that. We played good team defence. We played as a team on D. Those were the two keys to the win.”

The girls have a home game Thursday and then are off for the Christmas break.
