Junior Girls Basketball
The Junior girls basketball team was successful at the Victoria Police Tournament, finishing in fourth place. The team started the tournament on Monday with a loss against Claremont. The girls followed the first game with two wins against Lambrick Park and Reynolds. SMUS beat Reynolds 48-29 in a game that exemplified how the girls, both as individuals and as a team, have grown together. Congratulations to Sydney Stockus for her tournament All-Star selection.

This Thursday, the team plays Belmont at home. The team will then leave Friday morning to Vancouver to participate in the ISA Basketball Championships, hosted by York House.

Senior Boys Basketball
The Senior boys were on the road this weekend at the ISA Championships in Kitsalano. In the first game the boys took on Shawnigan Lake School. Francis Quinlan played hard pull the boys to victory by scoring a basket with 10 seconds left in the game. SMUS finished in fifth place losing to Collingwood by three points in the final game.

The next event for the team is the Brentwood “Countdown to Playoffs” tournament, scheduled for February 1-2.

Grade 9 Boys Basketball
The boys played four games this week; the first was a league game against the Claremont nines. The final result was a nine point loss. In the next game against Victoria High, the boys executed well as a team, with every player contributing. The team finished with a 13-point win. Next was the Police Tournament game vs. the Parkland junior boys. Parkland jumped out to an early lead, with SMUS trailing 17-4 in the first quarter. It was the hot shooting of Connor Eden and Leo Chou that sparked a comeback. The team won the game by two points. In the final game of the week against the Stelly’s juniors, SMUS lost by 12 points.

The Senior badminton team was away last Tuesday at St. Andrew’s. In what was a superior team performance, the SMUS team won 11 games to zero. Kevin Ma looked particularly impressive on the court. The team hosted Stelly’s on Thursday. With the flu bug plaguing the team, the team was forced to call-up some players. In another impressive performance, the team won eight games to three. Junior call-ups Laura Simandl Judy Kweon and Sylvia Ho played with fine form.

The next fixture for the team is an away game vs. Mt. Doug on February
