Fernie senior girls’ basketball has had a busy month.

On the weekend of February 10 and 11 the team travelled to Hanna, Alberta to compete in Sweetheart invitational tournament. Down to six players, the girls had their work cut out for them.

The first game on Friday was against Bawlf and saw the Falcons lose by a score of  60-39. The player of the game was Kaylee Kormillo.

After a one game break the six girls saw the # 3 AA ranked Picture Butte. The girls worked hard and saw an 81 -26 defeat. Player of the game was Sarah Gredzuk.

An early Saturday morning game brought on Senator Gershaw, which the Falcons lost by a score of 60-23. Player of the game was Astrid Wallinger.

There was a one game break before the girls played Notre Dame and came out with a 45-32 loss. After keeping it close most of the game the Falcon’s ran out of gas after a hectic four game schedule. Player of the game was Rosemary Dykhuizen.

On February 25 and 26, Fernie hosted the Kootenay senior girls single “A” basketball championships with seven teams competing from Rossland, Grand Forks, Mt. Sentinel, Sparwood, Naksup, Golden, and the hometown Fernie Falcons.

Fernie’s first game was a 70-48 victory over Golden. Emily Scheller was game MVP for the Falcons.

The second game for Fernie was a close 65-62 victory over Grand Forks. Kaylee Kormilo was named game MVP. This set up a rematch of the Fernie Falcons’ home tournament earlier on in the year when Rossland took home the hardware.

This time the Falcons were able to break the Royals’ relentless pressure on the press, and come away with a 78-62 victory.

Rosemary Dykhuizen was named game MVP and Kaylee Kormilo was named tournament MVP for the Fernie team.

Fernie will now represent the Kootenay region at the senior girls Basketball Provincials in Prince George on March 7 to 10.
