Golden Secondary School junior boys after winning the East Kootenay Championship in Invermere.

Golden Champs

The Junior boys basketball team from GSS once again proved to bee too much for other teams in the East Kootenay region.

The Golden Secondary Junior Boys Basketball team captured the East Kootenay Championship in Invermere.

The boys opened the tournament with a 111- 23 victory over Laurie Middle school from Cranbrook.

The local boys then faced a spirited squad from Creston in the semi-final prevailing 75-54.

The championship game was against host Invermere in a packed gymnasium and in a hard fought physical affair that saw Golden win the East Kootenay Championship trophy and banner 59-40.

The team would like to thank the fans who came out to Invermere and especially the Junior Girls Basketball team who made it for the final game and gave the boys huge support from the stands to counteract the raucous Invermere home crowd.

The Junior Boys travelled to Vancouver to play in the 43rd annual BC Junior Boys Provincial Championship March 8, 9, 10. Visit for game updates and results.
