The Gators beat Semiahmoo 105-47 and then pounded Cowichan 86-46.
They closed the tournament with a 76-56 win over the Gleneagle Talons, who are ranked third in the province among Quad-A schools.
Walnut Grove is now in Hawaii for a tournament. The Gators’ next home game is an exhibition match against the Abbotsford Panthers on Dec. 31.
