The 4th Annual Bears-Flames Elementary Boys Basketball Tournament was held recently at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School. Eight teams, from both the Sudbury Catholic and Rainbow District School Boards were involved in the double elimination tournament. Wembley Public School edged out St. Francis B for the Consolation side while Notre Dame (Hanmer) defeated Jessie Hamilton (Lively) to capture the Bronze. The championship game was a nail biter; St. David had a 19-12 half-time lead but fell to a determined St. Francis A squad by a final score of 43-39. Top scorers for St. David’s were Kevin McCoshew with 14, Zack Szycliak and David Nanez with 8 while St. Francis was led by Chad MacNeil with 12, Micheal Fabris with 9 and Kersey Kalubs with 8.|
MVP t-shirts were awarded to K. Boisvert of Notre Dame, Kevin McCoshew of St. David and Chad MacNeil of St. Francis for being instrumental to their teams’ success. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the Bears-Flames have played host to this prestigious tournament.. The organizers of the basket ball tournament would like to thank all participants, parents and volunteers for their support and special appreciation to the Sudbury Catholic District School Board for supplying the plaques and medals.
