Lightning grounded at provincials
For the first time in five years, the Langley Christian Lightning failed to medal at the provincial championships.
The Lightning, seeded third for the 16-team B.C. high school Single A basketball championships held at the Langley Events Centre over the weekend, placed seventh after going 2-2.
The Lightning alternated wins and losses at the four-day tournament, opening with an impressive 95-56 win over the Fort Nelson Huskies, but losing in the quarter-finals, 72-54 to the Immaculata Mustangs.
The team bounced back to down the Unity Christian Flames 65-51 before losing the fifth place game, 78-60 to the St. Ann's Crusaders.
Langley Christian did earn some accolades.
The Lightning were named the tournament's most sportsmanlike team.
Individually, Jason Wright was a second team all-star, while Matt Rook was an honourable mention.
Rook also won the tournament's three-point shooting competition.
