Total of 12 P.E.I. teams play round-robin format

SUMMERSIDE – Three Charlottetown schools went undefeated in the 37th annual Summerside Intermediate School tip-off basketball tournament over the weekend.

The Stonepark Tigers and Queen Charlotte Coyotes went 3-0 (won-lost) in boys’ play. Meanwhile, Stonepark posted an identical record as the only undefeated girls’ team.

A total of 12 midget AA teams – six boys and six girls – participated in the round-robin tournament, which did not feature championship games. The purpose of the tournament is to allow teams to play opponents they normally would not see during the P.E.I. School Athletic Association regular season. Thus, all games featured east teams facing opponents from the west.
