UC hoopsters forge ahead

For the first time in school  history, both Unity Christian senior basketball teams have qualified for provincials at the same time.

The UC girls upset Southridge in the Fraser Valley semi-finals,  winning 80-55. They finished second in the Valley, losing 99-45 to Abbotsford Christian in the final.

Janelle Taekema and Mandy VanMuyen were voted tournament all-stars, and Unity’s girls now head to Fernie for provincials on Mar. 8.

It will be the team’s fourth trip to provincials in the last 10 years.

On the boy’s side, UC has qualified for provincials for the second year in a row and third time in school history. After losing a 62-60 semi-final heartbreaker to Regent last week, the boys had to face St. John Brebouf in a win-and-you’re-in game on Saturday. UC jumped out to a  48-10 lead and cruised to a 58-23 win. Third year starter Michael Haan was named to tournament all-star team.

The UC boys head to provincials as the 10th seed, opening against Glenlyon Norfolk on Mar. 9.
