The weekend of April 1st/2nd saw the bantam boys from the Arnprior Basketball Club - Valley Pride competing in the Eastern Ontario Basketball League championships. With this being the inaugural season playing in the competitive division the team was slotted into division 5 at the end of the regular season. Saturday morning saw the Pride come away with a 25 point victory over the Belleville Spirits before falling 64-56 to the Nepean Blue Devils.
Sunday started with a thrilling two point victory in overtime, edging out the Naismith Gaels setting up an afternoon rematch with the Nepean Blue Devils. Unfortunately after a great first half which saw the Pride leading by 7 points they were unable to sustain the momentum and dropped a 58-44 decision in capturing the silver medal. Well done boys!
