In their final game, Hannah Cormode had 30 points while Lauren Awalt achieved a triple double with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 12 basketball team namesassists. Both girls are in the Warrior program.

With the opening of the new Belmont and Royal Bay high schools this September, the Warriors Basketball Club is increasing its number of teams and will continue to develop players to improve the West Shore’s competitiveness in school basketball.
