The AW Neill junior girls’ basketball team finished third at an icebreaker tournament in Courtenay last weekend, and coach Ryan Broekhuizen couldn’t be happier with the team’s effort.

Neill beat Kwalikum Secondary 42-20, then dropped a 50-17 decision to Glanford from Victoria. They faced host Mark. R. Isfeld in the third place game and won 43-30. “For a lot of the girls it was literally their first games of basketball they’ve ever played. The thing we did so well in that (loss) is we worked hard. I was very proud.”

Neill plays EJ Dunn on Monday, Dec. 8 at 3:15 p.m. at Dunn.
