Okanagan Mission edged out the Pen High Lakers senior girls basketball team 46-44.

Okanagan Mission edged out the Pen High Lakers senior girls basketball team 46-44.

It was in the final game of a tournament hosted by NorKam in Kamloops and Lakers coach Lesley Lacroix said it was a battle.

Stepping up at point guard was Grade 11 Adrienne Penner who did a great job in her position. Also playing strong was 
Bri Hrynyk defensively. While shutting down OK Mission’s top player, she scored eight points.
Hrynyk and Adra Greig received tournament all-stars for their efforts. The Lakers top scorers were Maxine Chapman with 14 points and Kelsey Desroches with nine.

The Lakers are without Bryanne Francisco, who is sidelined for a month minimum with a broken bone in her right hand.

“It was a solid start to our season, especially considering we did not have a full roster as many of our players were competing in volleyball provincials,” said Lacroix.

The Lakers first regular season game was a 56-48 loss to the Mt. Boucherie Bears on Tuesday. Greig had a strong game with eight rebounds and 10 points, while Hyrnyk, chipped in 10 points and grabbed seven rebounds.

The Lakers will be hosting a Christmas tournament from Dec. 14 to 16.
