’Cats fourth at provincials

Brookswood Bobcats Sydney Schepikoff fends of Mt. Baker Wild's Breanne Feere during opening round play of the B.C. high school girls AAA provincial basketball championships on Wednesday at Capilano University. The ’Cats won their first two games, but lost in both the semifinals and bronze medal match to place fourth.

Almost all season long, the Brookswood Bobcats were clutch with their outside shooting.

But the team went cold and it cost them at the B.C. senior girls AAA provincial basketball championships.

The Bobcats, ranked second going in, settled for fourth place after dropping their final two games at the tournament held at North Vancouver’s Capilano University.

Brookswood fell 71-64 to the South Kamloops Titans in Saturday’s bronze medal game. The night before, they lost a 72-65 overtime heartbreaker to the Claremont Spartans, the same team which knocked them out of the quarter-finals at the previous year’s provincial tournament.

The team struggled all tournament with their shooting, especially at the free throw line where they went a combined 56-for-104 for 53.8 per cent.

Brittney Church, who averaged 13.25 points per game, was named a second team all-star.
