All’s well that ended well for the Shawnigan Lake School senior girls’ basketball team.

Shawnigan Lake finished on a winning note in its senior girls’ basketball tournament after two losses with a 42-26 victory over rival Brentwood College.

Shawnigan lost earlier to Mount Douglas 47-33 and Cedar Secondary 73-32 in the four-team event.

“It wasn’t the outcome we were hoping to get,’’ said Shawnigan Lake coach Darrin Austin. “But it was nice to get some different competition.’’

Shawnigan had a nine-game win streak going into the tournament, but was upended by Mount Doug in the tournament opener. Casey Crowley was the leading scorer for Shawnigan with nine points.

Amber Ridgeway came through with seven for Shawnigan in the loss to Cedar.

Michelle Miles topped Shawnigan in the win over Brentwood with eight points.

Brentwood also lost its other two games to Cedar 70-44 and to Mount Doug 59-36.

Cedar placed first with a 55-51 win over Mount Doug. Many of its top players from the volleyball team also showed their prowess on the basketball court.

South Island action is next for the girls followed by the Island tournament at Mark Isfeld Feb. 20 to 22.
