On Saturday, Nov. 25 the Special Olympics B.C. Mission hosted their first annual Invitational Basketball Tournament at Hatzic Middle School in Mission.

The communities that took part in the invitational fun tournament were Mission, Abbotsford, Richmond and Langley. With these four communities there were nine teams competing.

In the photo from the first basketball game of the day, it’s Dustin Beard with the ball with his Special Olympics B.C. Langley Rebels team against the Special Olympics B.C. Mission Grizzlies.

The four teams from Special Olympics B.C. Langley would like to say thank you to Mission for hosting the invitational basketball tournament and hope to see you all again at the next one.
