KSS hosting girls hoops North Islands

Kondors’ senior girls ready to play hard this weekend

Kwalikum Secondary School’s senior girls basketball team is hoping home court advantage will help propel them into the Island finals.

As hosts of this week’s six-team AA Senior Girls North Island finals, the Kondors, who finished fourth in their nine-team, Mid-Island league regular season, go into the tourney seeded in fourth place and looking to grab one of the four berths to the Islands up for grabs.

KSS opened the tourney Thursday afternoon against fifth seeded Nanaimo District Secondary School (score not available). Win that one and they were to face the top seeded Wellington Wildcats at 3:45 today (Friday).

The ‘Nest has a full slate of games Friday and Saturday with the tournament final tipping off at 5 p.m. Saturday.

“I think for the first time this season we’re focused and really ready to play,” KSS teacher/coach Barry Bevilacqua said when asked how he likes his team’s chances of advancing. “I think if we control our turnovers and dictate the style of play we need to play, anything’s possible.”
