Valley champion KSS tunes up for provincials

Owls win Okanagan AAA girls basketball title with two convincing wins

The Kelowna Owls closed out an undefeated season against valley opponents, claiming the Okanagan AAA girls basketball championship last weekend in Kamloops.

KSS clinched the title with a pair of lopsided victories, defeating Pen Hi 75-45, then taking down Norkam from Kamloops 63-37 in the final.

“The girls played very good team defense, stifling Penticton’s and Norkam’s offense,” said Owls coach Lisa Nevoral. “The girls played an up tempo game.”

Tournament MVP Taya Hanson led KSS over the two games with 35 points, 15 rebounds and 15 steals.

Alley Corrado added 21 points, Courtney Donaldson had 20, and Lindsay Nicholas scored 17.

Donaldson and Nicholas were named to the tournament’s first all-star team, while Corrado and Ellie McCarthy earned second team honours.

The Owls, 24-8 overall this season, will head to Langley next week, March 2 to 5 for the provincial championship.

KSS is ranked No. 4 in B.C., while the Brookswood Bobcats, the heavy favourites, are No. 1.
