PORT HARDY - Port McNeill school sweeps to top spot in Grade 6-7 basketball tournament at Eagle View Elementary School

PORT HARDY — Sunset Elementary School swept undefeated through a small field of teams to claim the top spot in the Grade 6-7 invitational basketball tournament held at Eagle View Elementary in Port Hardy Mar. 31.

The tournament, organized by Eagle View teacher Jeff Barfoot, was the second of three tournaments for North Island elementary school players. Earlier, Grade 6-7 players competed in a tourney at Alert Bay’s T’lisalagi’lakw School. Next week, the season wraps up with a Grade 4-5 tournament at Sunset Elementary in Port McNeill Tuesday, April 19.

The Eagle View tourney drew four area teams — the host school, Sunset, Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw School and Sointula’s A.J. Elliot School.

Barfoot served as announcer and referee, and received help refereeing games from Port Hardy Secondary students Malcolm Richards and Cole Kinley.
