WAWMEESH G. HAMILTON/Alberni Valley News. A Lace It Up player

The Port Alberni Ladies Basketball Spring 2011 season came to a close Monday night with Mace Electric Shockers playing Lace It Up for first place.

Mace Electric and Lace It Up turned up the heat for their game with both teams looking to win the championship.  It was a tight game for the first 10 minutes, then Mace Electric went on a roll and never looked back, clinching the championship title with a 34 – 22 win.

Danielle Lessard won Most Valuable Player, while Katrina Hobbs won Most Hustle; Chelsey Charlesworth won Most Improved player, and Kari-Lea Charlesworth won Most Team Spirit.

Dave Ralla’s Ballers won third place by default after Canadian Tire forfeited their game due to a lack of players.

A big thank-you to all players, sponsors, and spectators.

If you are a female between the ages of 12-70 and are interested in playing during the fall, or if you would like to sponsor a team next yearl please contact Karli Van Vliet at or (250)723-6251 ext. 411.
