In the third-place game last Saturday, the Mustangs defeated St, Thomas Moore 52-44.

Jaedyn Penkala led the Mustangs with 15, Emma Johnson had 12, and Erin Jacobs added 11 in the win.

“This was one of the best games I have seen a senior girls team play defensively,” said Mustangs coach Dino Gini. “It was an awesome display of what defensive intensity can do, and it showed how deep the Mustangs are. Full court relentless pleasure for the entire game rewarded the Mustangs with a bronze medal and a well-deserved finishing.”

Immaculata opened the tourney with a 48-43 win over Bishop Carney as Siobhan Fitzpatrick scored 11 points, and Sarah Day added 10.

In the semifinal, the Mustangs ran into the No. 1-ranked AA team in B.C. and fell 58-30 to Holy Cross

Olivia Johnson led her team with nine points.

Mustangs boys…

In the opener, the Mustangs lost 45-27 to Bishop Carney. Michael Gini scored 11 points in the loss, while big man, Alex Hart, was held to just one basket by an aggressive Carney defence.

“(Alex) was held, grabbed and resembled more of a hockey game than a basketball game.”

Immaculata regrouped in its second game to defeat St. J. Brebeuf 57-46.

Alex Hart netted 25 points, while and Michael Gini added 24.

In their final game, there Mustangs lost a close one, 64-57 to Notre Dame.

Hart, with his best game of the tourney, finished with 37points, with Gini adding 14.

“I am real happy with how the team has progressed, we had great competition in front of big crowds,” said coach Dino Gini.
