·         Yesterday the Junior girls basketball team hosted the Nelson Lords.  Our Devils got off to a great start and they kept their positive momentum going until the final whistle, earning themselves a 52-22 win.  Defensive mentions go to Tatum Martino, Megan Spiller and Aimen Habib.  OT’s top scorers were Kaitlyn Ritz with 6 points, Sarah Malone with 18 and Sophie Gilbert with 14.  Excellent team effort Devils.
