Grade 8 boys and girls place well at regional zones

Both the girls and boys teams from Prince Rupert Middle School earned themselves top spots in zones earlier this month.

After traveling to Smithers to play in the grade 8 basketball zones for the region, both the girls and boys teams from Prince Rupert Middle School earned themselves top spots in zones.

“They did outstanding.” Said Coach Cary Dalton, adding, “The boys were very focused.”

The boys’ team of around 15 players played two games during zones, the first game playing against Kitimat in the semi-finals. In this match, the Storms annihilated Kitimat, beating the team by 40 points.

In the final game, which was against Skeena, the boys managed to earn themselves a hefty lead, ultimately overcoming Skeena to take the top spot for zones.

“Their defense was the best they’ve played all year. I was very proud.” Commented Dalton.

Zach Trimble of the PRMS Storms was named MVP of the team for all his efforts, with Justin McChensey winning the All-Star title.

Although the grade 8 girls didn’t place first, they still secured a respectable second place earlier this month at zones.

The Storms beat Smithers in their first game of zones, before going on to face off against Skeena. The PRMS girls had beat Skeena twice before this season, and had lost to them once, so they were pretty confident going in. In the end Skeena came out victorious, putting the PRMS Storms in second place spot.

“The girls played hard.” Coach Denise Willson told the Prince Rupert Northern View.

This year the team had ten girls on it, however a couple of players were unable to go to zones, including the teams’ starter.

PRMS’ Henzel Masacol was named the Storms’ All-Star player.
