Both junior basketball teams from Barriere Secondary (BSS) won their respective West Zone titles on home court Feb. 11.

The girls game was a nailbiter, with each team trading hoops at each end until the last few seconds of the game.

The female Cougars celebrated with a one point victory over visiting South Kamloops Titians by out scoring their opponent 30 to 29.

Leanna Mitchell led the way for the Cougars, scoring 9 points while Ivanna Villeneuve and Jordan Bauer chipping in 8 and 7 points respectively.

The boys game was a very different story with the Cougars jumping out to a 22 to 4 point lead after the first quarter, from where they never looked back,  finishing the game by a score of 66 to 27 also against visiting South Kamloops Titians in their West Zone final.

Carter Rudd lead the pace for the home town squad by filling the hoop with 16 points. Jacob Peterson had a complete game leading the team in assists while contributing 14 points of his own. Rounding out the scoring was Tristan Holt with 12 points while leading the charge on the Cougar’s defence.
