CONGRATULATIONS SPARTANS BASKETBALL TEAMS - NSSAF CHAMPS

THE SPEAKER « » : The honourable member for Dartmouth North.

SPARTANS BASKETBALL: NSSAF CHAMPS - CONGRATS.

SUSAN LEBLANC: Mr. Speaker, I would like the House to join me in congratulating the Dartmouth High School Spartans basketball teams. Both the boys and girls teams swept the NSSAF Provincial Championships this past Saturday in Greenwich, with the boys team winning the final game with an 89-73 point lead over Halifax Grammar, while the girls team, who remained undefeated this season, took their final game against Horton in a 72-70 nail-biter.

I want to congratulate all the players on both teams for such an impressive finish this season and to both Jashajaun Downey and Samantha Russell, each team's top scorers this weekend, with 33 points and 17 points respectively. Big kudos go to the two coaches, Lance Sparks and Marika Williams, who have led their teams all season to this victory. They should be very proud of their teams' successes, spirit, and conduct. The teams have done Dartmouth proud. I would like to add that my colleague from Dartmouth South is also super proud of the Spartans. Go Spartans.

THE SPEAKER « » : The honourable member for Halifax Armdale.
