Tartans Are OFSAA Bound
Wallaceburg’s senior girls’ AA basketball team is on the road to OFSAA.
Head coach Janine Day says they’ve been seeded fifth for the tournament in Huntsville, but they’re not putting a lot of stock in the numbers.
“I think it’s hard for the ranking committee at that level because they’re seeing (teams) from all over the province,” Day says. “It’s hard taking a team from up north compared to down here in SWOSSAA, we’re happy just to be there.”
The team is hoping to make it to the semi-finals on Saturday and bring home a medal.
Day says the team is very well rounded this season.
“Anyone can score,” Day says. “That’s the nice thing about these kids, I don’t think any of them feel tons of pressure because we have a different top scorer every game.”
The Tartans play their first game tomorrow morning at 9am, which will be streamed live online on the OFSSA website.
