Making just their second ever appearance in the provincials, Archbishop Carney Stars placed 13th among 16 squads at last week's B.C. AA senior girls high school basketball championships in Kamloops.
The Stars opened with a 70-39 loss to Victoria's Lambrick Park, then dropped a tough 68-67 overtime result to North Vancouver's Seycove.
The Stars then posted back-to-back wins, via a 61-49 win over Smithers and a 62-40 triumph over Vernon's Kalamalka.
The Stars are counting on a better finish next year, said Grade 11 guard Kayla North.
"I have great confidence that we will be physically and psychologically ready for the transition next season."
