Parkland in South Island hoops finals

Two local girls named to the South Island regional all-star basketball team

Parkland Secondary School’s senior girls basketball team goes into this weekend’s South Island finals at Brentwood College in Mill Bay coming off of a second place finish at their home tournament last weekend.

It was a close final on Saturday, Feb. 9 according to team supporter Harry Bisjak. The Panthers scored two wins in the tourney to reach the final against Surrey Christian. Bisjak called it a defensive matchup.

The visitors pulled out a 40-37 win over PSS in the last 30 seconds of the game.

Panthers’ players Kristie Gallager and Jamie Hargreaves were named by the team as their most valuable players during the tournament.

The South Island AA girls finals started Thursday, Feb. 14 at Brentwood College and wraps up with weekend. The top teams advance to the Island finals on Feb. 21 at St. Michael’s University School. Winners there are off to the provincial championships.

Two PSS girls have also been chosen to play for the South Island all-star team April 6 at St. Margaret’s school. Hargreaves and Kate Service will play against all-stars from the North Island. Bisjak said in his memory, it’s the first time two girls from Parkland have been selected to the all-star squad.
