Mustangs New City Champs

Grade 9 team claims junior championship

The Grade 9 champion Immaculata Mustangs girls basketball team.

It was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Immaculata junior girls basketball team.
Evidently no one told the players.
The Immaculata Mustangs Grade 9 girls basketball team claimed the City Championship with a 47-31 win over Springvalley in a spirited championship final earlier this month.
After falling behind in the first quarter, Immaculata would grab a 30-25 half-time lead before ramping up its defensive effort in the second half en route to the win.
Jaedyn Penkala led the offensive charge with 20 points as well as 13 steals. Megan Hart and Emma Johnson chipped in with eight points each.
Immaculata began the trek towards the championship with a 52-26 quarterfinal win over Constable Neil Bruce.
In the semi-final it was a rematch of last year’s championship game as the Mustangs took on Okanagan Mission and defeated their rivals 43-25, advancing to the championship game.
Springvalley would advance to the final with a big win over the number one seeded KCS team.
Kelowna Christian School placed third in the city championship by defeating Okanagan Mission.
