Lasalle Elementary Sr.
The LaSalle Elementary Sr. Girls Basketball Team will be representing the region of LaSalle at the upcoming Jeux de Montreal occurring April 5-7, 2019. In total, 16 regions will compete at Lauren Hill Academy Junior in Saint-Laurent to crown a Girls U12 Champion.
Thus far this season, the LaSalle Sr. Girls Basketball Team was a perfect 3-0 at the GMAA Basketball Tournament in February and was the only LBPSB elementary school to compete at the RSEQ Mini-Basket Tournament at École Lucien-Pagé earlier this year.
The Girls have been practicing multiple times per week (and everyday at recess) as they continue to prepare for the 2019 Hoopfest Tournament, 2019 WILBA 3on3 Tournament and most notably the 2019 Jeux de Montréal.
In February, the Grade 5 Girls Basketball Team, led by captain Bryanna Chiasson captured the 2019 WESBL Girls Championship. To further complete the perfect season, the Grade 6 Girls Basketball Team, led by captain Sofia Sellitto will aim to capture the 2019 Jeux de Montréal Champions.
In all, over 40 girls are enrolled in the basketball program at LaSalle Elementary and the future looks bright!
