Walnut Grove Gators fifth in Fraser Valley

Coming off a fifth-place finish in the Faser Valley Quad A senior boys basketball championships, the Walnut Grove Gators will be playing on home soil against B.C.’s elite starting next week.

The Gators, who finished seventh in the 2014 B.C. tournament, will look to improve on that when the provincials get underway at the Langley Events Centre next Wednesday, March 11 at the Langley Events Centre (LEC).

On Saturday, the Gators downed Port Moody’s Heritage Woods Kodiaks 79-72 at the LEC, in the game deciding fifth and sixth in the Fraser Valley.

The Yale Lions from Abbotsford are the Fraser Valley champions after an 88-78 win over Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers in the title game, also played Saturday afternoon at the LEC.

The Gators’ Ty Rowell was named to the Fraser Valley’s second all-star team.

Next up for the Gators is the B.C. championship tournament running March 11 to 14 at the LEC.

Walnut Grove’s first game at the provincials is Wednesday, March 11 against Burnaby South in the LEC’s arena bowl. Opening tip-off is 6:45 p.m.
