YCMHS Senior Girls Hosting Steve Brewer Memorial Basketball Tournament This Weekend

Posted on Thursday, December 7, 2017 10:16 AM

The Yarmouth High Vikings senior girls basketball team will host a six-team tournament this weekend.

It's in honour of local basketball icon Steve Brewer, a talented player, coach and referee who passed away in 2012.

Mary Saulnier, coach of the girls team says it's special to host the tournament.

"Especially this year, because we have his daughter Janelle on the team. Steve had a great impact on basketball in Yarmouth, so we're very honoured to be able to host this tournament each year in his memory."

The event has been held each of the last five years, along with a boys team tournament.

Games get underway tomorrow afternoon at 2 as Yarmouth takes on Shelburne.

Saulnier says the event is open to anyone.

"There will likely be a small fee to help cover our tournament costs, but we would appreciate any fan support that we can get."

The championship game will be held Saturday afternoon at 4:30.

Teams from Northeast Kings, West Kings, Middleton, Parkview are also taking part.
