Oak Park hangs on to win early season basketball tournament at U of W

  • Print
THE Oak Park Raiders are ready to rumble and the high school basketball season hasn't even opened yet.

The Raiders won the 2008 Flanders Insurance High School Girls' Classic on Wednesday at the Duckworth Centre with a 68-67 win over Saskatchewan's Notre Dame Hounds.

"It was great for us to be able to come out strong in the first few games of the season, this was a really good start for us," said Oak Park's Alyssa Grant, the tournament MVP.

Grant, who has committed to join the U of W Wesmen women's basketball team next fall, said the Raiders led by about 10 points for most of the fourth quarter until about eight seconds left when Notre Dame's Kayla Hannah hit a three-pointer to bring the Hounds to within a point. "We had to work hard to hold onto the win after that. It was a good experience for us because we're a younger team with just four Grade 12s on the team."

Shawna Solarchuk led Oak Park with 15 points while Kate Dorrian added 14 and was named the Raiders' player of the game.

In the third-place game, Glenlawn defeated Miles Macdonell 65-42. Madison Bradbury and Ayse Kalkan had 19 points each while Kristen Young added 18 points and was named Glenlawn's player of the game. Victoria King scored eight points and was named Miles Mac's player of the game. Solarchuk, Hannah, Bradbury and Raaabe were named tournament all-stars.
