Storm Hits Peterborough as South Carleton Girls Win Tourney

By Alyson Fair

It was a winning weekend for South Carleton Storm at the Green and White girls high school basketball tournament hosted by Adam Scott Collegiate in Peterborough.

The senior girls’ team advanced to the championship game with a 58-27 win against Belleville’s Eastside Secondary School and a 55-28 win over Peterborough’s Crestwood Secondary School.

The Storm met up with the Adam Scott Lions in the final. The Lions, known as a basketball school in the Kawartha area, held the lead for the first three quarters. But the Storm lived up to their name and caused a disturbance on the court to take over the lead with one minute left in the game. With strong defensive plays, South Carleton was able to fend off the Lions to win the tournament with a score of 45-44.

In other Storm action, the junior girls’ team played impressively in this tournament to place second overall.

Back here in Ottawa, the senior and junior teams are currently sitting first and second respectively in their NCSSAA West divisions.
