For the sixth year in a row, the Britannia Bruins battled for the senior girls basketball city championship. After losing to the Churchill Bulldogs for the past two years, the Bruins won their fourth title since 2012 in a 71-49 win at Hamber secondary Feb. 9.
The Bruins defeated Kitsilano three consecutive years from 2012 through 2014 and returned to the final in 2015 for their first match-up against Churchill, who surged to win back-to-back championships before being dethroned last week by Britannia.
Both teams advance to Lower Mainland tournaments. Britannia plays at the AA tier, and Churchill competes at the AAA tier. (Tiers are based on the size of a school's combined Grade 11 and Grade 12 girls population.)
