The Fort St. James Falcons senior basketball teams hosted a tournament at the high school Jan. 10 and 11.

The tournament at Fort St. James Secondary School (FSJSS) included both senior girls and boys basketball.

Teams came from Burns Lake, Tumbler Ridge, Vanderhoof and Dawson Creek to play in the tournament.

Girls team coach Suzanne Burk said she saw the boys team improve together as the tournament went on, and the girls team did well, only losing the one game to Burns Lake.

The Falcon senior girls ended the tournament in second place, with Burns Lake taking first, Mountain Christian School (Dawson Creek) in third, and Tumbler Ridge in fourth.

The Falcon boys ended up in fourth in the tournament, with Northside Christian School (Vanderhoof) taking first place, Mountain Christian School in second, and Tumbler Ridge in third.

The event was made possible by the assistance of a second referee from Fraser Lake, though there was no team from Fraser Lake in the tournament.

Rylan Tsuji came for the two-day tournament as the second ref, officiating Friday and Saturday.
