Earlier this month West Shore RCMP hosted the Mountie Cup, a senior girls basketball tournament held at Royal Bay and Belmont Secondary schools. The tournament is focused on highlighting and supporting girls in sports.

The opening ceremonies kicked off with a presentation from West Shore RCMP officers speaking on their policing experience and, Police Dog Handlers Cst. Hough and Cst. George with their Police Dogs Luthor and Porter.

The tournament consisted of 16 teams split into Tier 1 and Tier 2 groups. We thank the teams who travelled from all over Vancouver Island to participate in this tournament and thank School District 62 for providing the venues and school support.

A big congratulations to our Tier 1 and Tier 2 winners:
