HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Panorama Ridge Thunder junior girls are provincial champs

SURREY — It was an all-Surrey final at the 2015 Telus Junior Girls Provincial Basketball Champions last Saturday. At the energy filled home of the high school basketball championships at the Langley Events Center, the Panorama Ridge Thunder rumbled over the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers with a 54-35 win.

The first half was a tight battle but Panorama Ridge came out strong in the second with a  tough defense effort, converting their turnovers into points.

Panorama Ridge forward Savannah Dhaliwal was named tournament MVP.  Grade 9 standout guard Shelvin Grewal was selected to the first team Provincial AllStars, and shooting guard Simrat Dosanjh was named to the second team AllStars.

Thunder coach, John Sowerby, said it was a great team effort and the team played well when it mattered the most, adding the Thunder will now be focusing on the ultimate goal for next year – the Senior Girls Championship.
