Duchess beat out Vanderhoof in the final "but only by 20 points," says NVSS coach.

Marcie Schlick of the Duchess Park Condors looks to harass Nechako Valley’s Kassidy Dick during the AA girls zone championship game at College Heights on Friday evening. Duchess Park won the game 74-54

Duchess Park beat Nechako Valley Secondary School (NVSS) 74-54 Friday in the final during the Prince George basketball tournament.

Five teams participated in the triple knock out.  NVSS beat College Heights Thursday by 12 points, lost to Duchess Park Thursday by 30 points 80-50, beat College Heights Friday afternoon winning by 22 points 62-40 and lost to Duchess Park Friday in the final.

Duchess Park is the #1 team in the province and we played them very well, Vaughn Mueller said, NVSS basketball coach.

“It was a huge accomplishment for us considering the number three ranked team in the province got beat by 44. It’s just unfortunate we were in the same zone or we would have had a good chance of making the provincials. Duchess is an exceptional girls team. We played our best basketball and it was really good,” Mr Mueller said.
