Boys basketball takes to the sky

On Thursday, Oct. 24, the Harlem Crowns graced Sooke with their skill and antics.

On Thursday night at EMCS, some star basketball players took to the sky when they seemingly walked on air.

MLA John Horgan provided the officiating for the game, serving as the referee.  “My Dad managed the Victoria Senior Basketball team in the 1950’s,” writes Horgan in a post-event email, “and the Globetrotters used to come to our house for dinner when they came to town.”

The entire boys’ basketball team had smiles on their faces throughout the game. Horgan, too, officiated the game with style, smiles and grace. “Harlem Crowns squeak out a win against the hometown EMCS Wolverines,” tweeted Horgan after the game. “Ref missed some calls or it could have gone the other way.”

The event was coordinated by Trevor Bligh as a fund raiser for the EMCS Senior Boys’ basketball team. The event raised close to $1,000, with about $250 going to  the team.
