ATSS senior boys finish first

The Abbotsford Traditional Secondary School Knights senior boys basketball team fought their way to the top of the heap in the Fraser Valley senior boys AA Tier 2 basketball league.

The Knights compiled a record of five wins and one loss in regular-season play, only losing to Burnsview in late January.

ATSS outscored the opposition 449-357 during the seven games, and opened the regular season with five straight wins.

ATSS is the lone Abbotsford school in Tier 2, posting wins against D. W. Poppy, Langley Fundamental, Surrey Christian, St. John Brebeuf, Sands and Garibaldi.

The Knights also went a combined 4-3 in exhibition and tournament play in December and January. Over the next week, ATSS has two crossover games against the Tier 1 eighth- and ninth-place teams to determine seeding for the Fraser Valley playoffs.

The Fraser Valley tournament combines both AA Tier 1 and 2 teams, and kicks off on Feb. 20.
