March 9, 2018 (Cornwall, ON)The Almonte and District High School Thunderbolts are the 2018 OFSAA Boys’ A Basketball Consolation Champs, after defeating Rockway Mennonite Collegiate 85-66 on Wednesday to take the winner’s plaque.

“It really tops off our season,’ said Almonte Coach Dan Hickey of the win. “Our motto for the year was ‘Road to OFSAA.’ I’ve got to say that although we didn’t get the (gold) medal, a plaque was nice and I couldn’t be happier.”

Strong defense, shooting by forward Sam Dyck and guard Liam Hickey, as well as rebounding by forward Brendan Hudson, were key factors in the win.

Meanwhile top-seeded Nicholson Catholic College won gold in the championship final Wednesday night, defeating number two seed College Notre Dame 47-43 to win the overall title.

The hosting
St. Lawrence Secondary School (SLSS) Saints advanced to the semis of the consolation round, losing to Almonte 58-30.

The final closed out a four-day event, which began Sunday with a championship banquet, and attracted 20 of the top basketball teams in the province to SLSS.

The tournament was the result of a volunteer effort, initiated three years ago, by a 10-person committee led by SLSS teachers and co-conveners Josh Greenley and Stephane St. Denis. The committee sweated over a range of details from meeting the needs of OFSAA officials to ensuring people could watch the action live over the Internet. The livestream provided by the Upper Canada District School Board attracted 26,000 live views.
