The Rossland Secondary School Royals’ senior girls basketball team is on a roll this season, knocking down 13 consecutive wins to start the year.

“The Rossland girls are having an excellent season so far,” said coach Rick McKinnon. “They’ve won three tournaments this year.”

Last weekend the RSS team travelled to Grand Forks where they matched up against familiar West Kootenay rivals.

In the Royals’ first game they buried Castlegar 60-10, before taking down L. V. Rogers from Nelson 71-29. In the tournament finale, the Royals overcame a tough J. L. Crowe side winning 49 – 40 to take the Grand Forks title.

The Royals also seized top spot at the J. L. Crowe tournament earlier this year, then followed that up with a victory at the St. Ann’s Academy tournament in Kamloops. RSS decisively defeated Valemont 60-14 , St. Ann’s 67-21, and Kamloops Christian 72-48 in the final to win the tournament.

RSS is 13-0 this season and will continue its run to the single-A provincials with another tournament in Creston this weekend.
