The FSJSS Senior Girls Basketball team was happy with their performance at the recent Provincial Championships March 7-10 at UNBC.

The team went into the tournament ranked 16th out of the 16 teams total, but left the tournament ranked 14th.

While the Falcons lost three out of the four games they played, they managed to beat one team they had been defeated by throughout the regular season.

The FSJSS Falcons won their game on day two against Valemount 69-59. The Valemount team is from the same zone as the Falcons and had won every game the two teams had matched up in regular play.

But the Falcons managed to rise to the occasion of the provincials. In their other match-ups, Fort St. James faced some pretty tough competition from larger schools and some private schools, but still felt they held their own. Mulgrave (West Vancouver) beat the Falcons 91-36, Duncan came out on top 76-44 on the third day and Kelowna won out 61-41 in the final game of the tournament for the local team.
