The Grade 9 Crusader Basketball Team completed their 2008 season yesterday by winning the Consolation Final in the Junior High Invitational Tournament, defeating the Acadia Axemen 75-51.  St. Paul's was ranked 4th in this provincial tournament whereas Acadia was ranked 3rd.  The game was closely contested through 3 quarters of play.  However, a solid 4th quarter of play opened the game up as St. Paul's dominated offensively, executing an excellent transition of play and consistently finishing their shots and shutting down the Acadia offensive play.   This final game of the season was an fine close to a excellent season of play.  The Crusaders ended with a 22-3 record.
