They Win Again
The crowd went wild as the Burnaby South Rebels senior boys basketball team battled and won against Semiahmoo – taking the top spot in the 4A Provincial Championships. Congratulations to the Rebels on their third Provincial win in four years!
The story was widely covered by the media – including the multiple layers, such as overcoming injury, and a long and friendly history between the teams and coaches. The game was also streamed live from the venue. You can watch the highlights here. As many said on social media, the student athletes did it with the support of staff, volunteers and their community of friends and family, many of whom can be seen in the photos above.
