The Nomades de Montmorency are once again National Champions.
Montmorency defeated the Lethbridge Kodiaks 63-54 for the team’s third straight gold medal.
The Gold Medal Game at the 2015 CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship lived up to its billing in a tight affair between the Nomades and the Kodiaks. While the Kodiaks had a two-point lead at the half, it would be the 3-point efforts from the Nomades to start the 3rd that ultimately decided the outcome.
The Humber College Hawks advanced to the Bronze Medal Game at the CCAA Women’s Basketball Nationals with a 72-60 win over the Quest Kermodes. A very tight game in the first half saw the Hawks go into the locker room with a 30-28 lead with strong play from Aleena Domingo and Mary Asare. Down the stretch Humber pulled away from the Kermodes with a 23-13 third quarter of action. Player of the Game for the Hawks was Ceejay Nofuente (16 points, 7 rebounds) and for the Quest Kermodes was Katrin Sandbichler (7 Points, 9 rebounds).

In one of the most exciting games so far in the CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship, the Holland Hurricanes defeated the Dynamiques de Sainte-Foy by a 67-61 score in double overtime. Jazlin Barker (Player of the Game, 16 points, 7 rebounds) was red-hot for the Hurricanes, who also got 16 points from Jenea Barrett. For the Dynamiques, it would be Kim Letang who lead the way, earning Player of the Game honours for her 22 points (presenter CCAA Rep Mireille Beland) . The Hurricanes head to the Bronze Medal game against the Humber Hawks Saturday evening at 5:30 pm PT.
The VIU Mariners finished where they were seeded by knocking off the Mount Allison Mounties for 7th place on Saturday. Lead by Jenna Carver in her final game for VIU, the Mariners controlled the game, but it did become close at times. It would be Carver’s 22 points and 29 rebounds that would be the ultimate undoing of the Mounties. Maddyson McDonald picked up her 2nd player of the game nod while Carver received her 2nd of the tournament as well.
VIU’s effort did not go unnoticed as later in the evening after the gold medal game VIU received the Fair play award.
Bronze Medal Game
The Holland College Hurricanes won their 1st ever Women’s Basketball Nationals Medal with a win in the Bronze Medal Game against the Humber Hawks. It was a tough road for Holland to get to the Bronze Medal game, from the win over VIU to the loss against Lethbridge. The morning win against Saint-Foy took a toll on some players but a great job by Jenae Barrett and Jazlin Barker propelled Holland to the medal.
