ALEXANDRIA – The Rothwell-Osnabruck School Lancers have won the Upper Canada Cup Senior Girls Basketball Championship.

The Ingleside team defeated the Thousand Islands Secondary School Pirates 61-48 Wednesday at the contest at Glengarry District High School.

Lancers’ Coach Stephane St. Denis says the team’s ability to hold the Pirates’ offence in check, limited the number of three-pointers they could make.

The team was carried through by strong performances from Emilie Lamarche, Kebbie Brown and Kassie Karelse.

Coach St. Denis says it’s a bittersweet moment because many of the players are now graduating a moving on.
