“We’ve had two hours of basketball every day since the first tryout so it’s really good to come out here and put everything we’ve learned into action,” Holy Cross Crusaders player Benjamin Carlson said.

“It’s just really an honour and fun to be out here with all my teammates and just happy to represent our school and our city.”

“Well it’s cool ’cause it’s at like four different schools and we’ve never won it before,” Centennial Chargers player Courtney Primeau said.
