The Semiahmoo Totems passed their first test with ease at BC High School Basketball Championships Wednesday night in Langley.
The triple-A senior girls team – the No. 1 ranked squad in provincial rankings – cruised into quarter-finals after a first-round win, 90-29, over No. 16 seed North Peace Secondary Wednesday night.
With the victory, the Totems advance to Thursday’s second round, where they’ll square off against No. 8-ranked Kelowna’s Okanagan Mission Secondary, who advanced to the second round with a win Wednesday over No. 9 Abbotsford Senior Secondary.
Today’s game is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre’s centre court.
Against North Peace, the Totems were led by Izzy Forsyth, Tara Wallack and Faith Dut, each of whom had double-doubles. Forsyth finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds, Wallack had 25 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, while the University of Florida-bound Dut – Semiahmoo’s lone Grade 12 starter – ended the game with 17 points and 17 boards.
Totems guard Deja Lee also finished in double figures in points, with 12, while adding six steals and three assists.
