On Saturday they defeated two very good teams, in the semi finals they defeated Jean Vanier from Scarbourough and Sarnia Northern in the finals. Duke and I are proud of how the boys competed this weekend. Congratulations to Dominic Johnson for being named a first team all star and to Sajed Farhat for being named tournament MVP.
A very special thanks to all the tournament volunteers, Emily Boutet, Sabrina Mendoza, Giordano "Peaches" Oglin, Sandy Hanny, Terryn Walker, Felix Hernandez, Krista Lagasse, Adrian Campbell, Taylor Galvano and Melissa Fares. Duke and I can't express in words how fantastic this group was all weekend, they basically ran the tournament, all I had to do was worry about coaching my team.
Our Senior Boys also shone in their tournament the same weekend. Alhough our senior boys lost their first game in pool play they played much better and won the last two games.
Donal Mensah got his first in game dunk (see attached) as did Akim Lol Ruot. We didn't get Akim's on film, but his was a two handed tomahawk driving off the win in traffic. Very impressive, especially for a player who is playing basketball for the first time in his life.
