The HJ Cody Grade 9 girls basketball team played some awesome basketball last week, hosting CWAJHAA finals at HJ Cody and Fox Run schools March 12 and 13.

Thursday’s games saw the Lakers up against Camille Voyageurs, beating them 51-35, then face Lacombe Lasers and come out on top 44-33.

This put them first in their pool, and they faced Hunting Hills in the crossover game on Friday, squeaking out a victory against the Lightning 40-37.

The final saw the Lakers up against their arch nemesis, the Lindsay Thurber Raiders. This game was close from the opening whistle on.

In the last five minutes of the game, the Lakers ran into some foul problems and ended up losing 53-39, taking home the silver medal.
