Gators make final four, earn spot at Quad-A provincials

The Walnut Grove Gators have earned a spot in the first-ever B.C. provincial Quad-A basketball championships.

The Gators senior boys basketball team is assured of a top-four finish in the Fraser Valley championships after blowing out the MEI Eagles 93-55 in the quarter-finals on Monday night at Walnut Grove Secondary.

The Gators, the top seed in the tournament, now face the No. 4 Gleneagle Talons on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre. The other semifinal pits the No. 2 Tamanawis Wildcats versus the No. 3 Holy Cross Crusaders.

The top six teams will play at the provincial championships, which run March 12 to 15 at the LEC.

This is the first year there has been a Quad-A level for the province’s largest schools.
