The grade 8 boys basketball team represented the mighty Eagles of Royal Oak well this weekend.
In a "comeback" tournament at Cowichan Secondary in Duncan, the boys swept the tournament winning all four games including wins over Cowichan, Brentwood College and second place Lake Trail from Courtenay 60 to 39 where the boys played probably their best game of the season.

The future looks bright for both next years grade 8 team with five grade 7's returning and for next year's Claremont Spartan junior boys team who will gain some remarkable young men next year. Congrats to all of the players who worked so well together this weekend. Captains Crash Wergeland and Ethan Boag showed great leadership and helped a great group of boys to season full of hard work and great learning.

Coaches Allen Gunderson, Sterling O'Sullivan and Mark Neufeld couldn't have been more proud.
