Mustangs 3rd at Victoria tourney

Immaculata, ranked first in AA girls basketball in Kelowna, goes 3-1 at first tournament of the season

The Immaculata Mustangs posted three wins in four tries to finish in third place at their first senior high school girls basketball tournament of the season.

The Mustangs, the defending provincial AA champs who are ranked No. 1, defeated fourth-ranked Seycove 66-62 in the third-place final last weekend at the Victoria Christmas Tournament.

Ashlyn Day led the way with 23 points, Nicole Hart had 19 and Teaghan Wallace had 10.

The Mustangs, led into the season by returnees Day, Hart, Amanda Grant, Kate Johnson and Ashley Prehofer, opened with a 90-25 win over Dover Bay.  Mackenzie Horst and Day scored 21 points each.

Immaculata then defeated Isfeld 90-53, as Day scored 30,  Johnson had 22 and Hart, 20.

In the semifinal, the Mustangs matched up well against Riverside, the No. 5 team in AAA, but fell 68-60. Riverside went on to win the final by 20 points.

Key additions for the Mustangs this season include Grade 10 players Horst and Wallace.

“Other additions include Hannah Flynn, Gabby Cocar, Justin Puno, Lexi Brushinsky and Katrina Routley all who have the ability to step up when called upon and all who will be with our team for the next two to three years,” said Mustangs coach Andrew Gini.

The Mustangs are relatively young team with three Grade 12s, three Grade 11s and six Grade 10s.

“The more we play, the better this team will get and the more we will gel,” Gini added.

Immaculata will host its annual Mustang Classic, Jan. 7 to 9.
