Annual KSS alumni action

Golden Shoe up for grabs again in annual Qualicum Beach tournament

Justin Tryon throws down a dunk in last year’s installment of the KSS Alumni Basketball tournament. The 2015 tournament takes place Dec. 19-20 at Kwalikum Secondary School.

It’s that time of year again, as players from years past will dust off their shoes and make sure to spend a little more time stretching in anticipation of the annual Kwalikum Secondary School Alumni Basketball Tournament.

Last year, it was the Kwalikum Kondors senior boys basketball team taking home the “Golden Shoe” for winning the alumni tournament.

With the team being split thanks to graduating players, there’s going to be some extra motivation from both the graduates from last season and this year’s installment of the senior team to see who will come away with the “Golden Shoe” once again.

Of course, there’s the remaining alumni from years gone by that will look to have something to say about who walks away as the winner this year.

The tournament will run December 19 and 20 at Kwalikum Secondary School. Any former players looking to take part can contact Butch Gayton at 250-752-5651.
