KAPUSKASING – Students from seven schools in the area participated on Feb.27 for the 20th annual Blue and Gold elementary school basketball tournament held at the Kapuskasing District High School (KDHS).
The all-day event saw three divisions of play, with a Boys A and B, and a Girls division that featured 13 teams in total competing from Andre Cary, St.Patrick's School, Coeur du Nord, Jacques Cartier, DJPS, St. Jules, and the Grade 9 Boys PE class, from KDHS.
Taking the top spot this year in both the Girls and Boys division finals was Andre Cary, with St.Patrick's School claiming the silver in both as well.
“Everything went extremely well today,” said one of the tournament's organizers Norm Belanger. “All of the games took place on time, and the refereeing was outstanding. The kids behaved remarkably both on and off the court, it truly is a tribute to all of the elementary schools in the way that they have trained the kids to play at such a high level.”
