Saanich school wins Tier 1 at annual Mountie Cup basketball tourney

West Shore RCMP hosts 16 Island teams at Belmont, Royal Bay schools

Two local teams battled for the top tier win at the Mountie Cup earlier this month on the West Shore.

Hosted by West Shore RCMP, the senior girl’s basketball tournament rolled into Belmont and Royal Bay high schools on Feb. 2.

“This tournament provides a fun environment for West Shore RCMP to interact with students and continue building relationships in the community. We set up information booths with fun games and prizes for all high school students to participate in,” Const. Nancy Saggar said in a news release.

A total of 16 teams from across Vancouver Island battled in two brackets with the local Pacific Christian School downing fellow Saanich school Lambrick Park 71-55 to top Tier 1. Brentwood College School (Mill Bay) won 61-55 over Dover Bay Secondary (Nanaimo).
