Three-point champions crowned

Deo, Sings win inaugural Abbotsford High School Three Point contest

Abbotsford high school basketball stars had the opportunity to shine at UFV on Friday.

The first-ever Abbotsford High School Three-Point Shooting Championship saw the most promising long-range shooters in town battle it out for bragging rights in a contest similar to the NBA’s three-point shooting contest. Competitors had one minute to shoot five basketballs from five stations all around the arc. Each shot was worth one point, with the final shot on each rack, the money ball, worth two.

Athletes competed in a preliminary round at UFV on Friday afternoon, with the top three girls and top three boys advancing to the finals at halftime of each of the Cascades games on Friday night.

Yale Secondary Grade 10 student Sapna Deo won the girls title, beating out W.J. Mouat students Karanveer Rai and Amna Hadzovic. Mouat Grade 12 student Jass Singh defeated MEI’s Daniel Siemens and Mouat’s Kenan Hadzovic in the boys final.
