The Yale Lions recaptured the senior girls crown, beating the Bateman Timberwolves 63-52.

Bateman led for most of the game, and were up by as much as 39-26 early in the third, but the Lions battled back in the second half. The fourth quarter saw the Lions outscore the Wolves 14-0 to secure the win.

Yale’s Sapna Deo and Bateman’s Jayden Gill earned their team’s respective player of the game honours.

The Lions senior girls had previously lost to the Abbotsford Panthers in 2016, but beat the Eagles back in 2015.

Other division winners at the event included: Abbotsford Senior (junior boys), Yale Lions (junior girls), Clayburn Middle (Grade 8 boys), MEI Eagles (Grade 8 girls), Abbotsford Senior (Grade 9 boys) and Rick Hansen (Grade 9 girls).
