Shawnigan wins Welcome Back tournament at DCS

Led by MVP Casey Crowley, Shawnigan Lake School’s senior girls basketball team claimed top spot at Duncan Christian’s Welcome Back Tournament last weekend, even though any of the top three teams could have prevailed.

Cowichan Secondary finished second, the host DCS Chargers were third, and a young Chemainus team placed fourth.

The tournament opened on Friday evening with Cowichan getting past DCS 55-48. Players of the Game were Ashton Aumen for Cowichan and Lauren King-Nyberg for Duncan Christian.

Also on Friday, Shawnigan defeated Chemainus 65-24, with Shawnigan’s Chelsea Gladstone and Chemainus’s Emily Guest named Players of the Game.

On Saturday morning, DCS’s Rebecca Bakker and Chemainus’s Moka Shimatani were named Players of the Game as DCS beat Chemainus. Shawnigan then beat Cowichan 45-29, with Crowley taking Player of the Game honours for Shawnigan and Robin Thomas recognized for Cowichan.

That afternoon, Cowichan defeated Chemainus as Sartaj Dale and Natalie Craig were named Players of the Game for their respective teams, and Kelsey McGaw and Juliet King were similarly honoured as Shawnigan Topped DCS 68-50.

Besides Crowley being named MVP, the tournament all-star team included Shimatani, King-Nyberg, Dale, and McGaw.
