Joining the Owls this year will be the province’s No. 1 ranked and last year’s champions Burnaby South Rebels, No. 4 ranked Handsworth Royals and No. 6 ranked St. George Saints. Rounding out the tournament hopefuls are three Alberta teams: Raymond Comets, Harry Ainlay Titans and All Saints Legends.

The tournament is full of school cheer from the KSS students and often serves as a big advantage for the hometown team.

The KSS Owls women’s team kicked off the tournament Thursday morning against South Kamloops.

The tournament will run throughout Friday with the finals scheduled for Saturday night.
