The Belmont senior boys squad recorded a decisive win against Oak Bay in league play Jan. 18. Chris Lequesne netted 36 points while Jordan Fenn chipped in with 21.

Two days later, the Bulldogs took provincially-ranked and first place Claremont secondary right down to the wire, but came up two baskets short in the end result for a 75-71 loss.

Belmont fell behind early against Claremont and were down 14 points at halftime, but came roaring back in what coaches Kevin Brown and Tom Holmes described as their best half of the entire season.

Once again, Lequesne and Fenn led the offence, with 31 and 18 points respectively, while Devon Bell and Gerry Vandan provided a spark off the bench.

The senior girls lost in league action to Oak Bay on Jan. 18.

Carly Hansen was Belmont’s top scorer, while Becky Valentin and Carly Nelson were leading rebounders. Jill Lambeth and Maddy Creasey had strong defensive efforts for the Bulldogs.
