Titans topple Crusaders
The South Kamloops Titans twice knocked off the top-ranked AA girls high school basketball team in B.C.
South Kam, ranked third in AAA, beat the Holy Cross Crusaders of Surrey 64-50 on Saturday, Jan. 5, and 58-53 on Sunday, Jan. 6, at the Tournament Capital Centre.
The Crusaders will likely be pegged to win the AA provincials, which will be held in the River City in March.
Emma Wolfram netted 16 points and recorded nine blocks on Saturday for South Kam, while Maya Olynyk pitched in with 13 points, six steals and four assists.
Anna Frenkel also had a solid game, with 11 points and five rebounds, while Mieke DuMont scored 10 points.
Wolfram had 18 points and Olynyk bagged 10 in the win on Sunday.
Emily Vilac — who joined Olynyk, Wolfram and Crusader players Michelle Bos and Amy Sprangers on the provincial under-17 team over the summer — added nine points.
The Titans are hosting the Salmon Arm Jewels today (Tuesday, Jan. 8).
