Three wins in four games lifted the Holy Cross Crusaders to a third place finish at the B.C. Senior AA girls high school basketball championships in Kamloops last week.

The lone loss was a 73-66 loss to the Britannia Bruins in a semifinal contest Friday night. The Crusaders fell behind by 14 points in the third quarter, only to go on a 13-2 run to get to within three. 

But the Bruins hung on, and held their advantage between five and seven points for much of the final frame.

Jeanneine Yngresso led Holy Cross with 19 points, while Tessa Beauchamp added 18 and Michelle Bos netted 16.

Holy Cross came back the next night to clinch third place by crushing the Vernon Panthers 76-44. 

The Crusaders led by 26 points at the half, and were on a 28-0 run before a Panthers free throw ended it.

Beauchamp topped the scoring with 19 points, with Yngresso adding another 17. Jessica Villadiego also scored in double figures with 11. Bos with 18  and Caitlin McNaughton with 13 were the top rebounders for the Crusaders, who collected 71 boards compared to Vernon’s 44.

Holy Cross began play with an 81-45 victory over the Windsor Dukes. Yngresso and Villadiego each scored 15 points, with Claudia Garzitto adding 12 and Beauchamp contributing 11. 

A 78-62 win over Sahali Thursday sent Holy Cross on to the semifinal round. Bos recorded a double double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Beauchamp was 11-for-18 from the floor, adding another eight points on 14 free-throw attempts in a 30-point outing.

Beauchamp earned a selection to the tournament all-star team, with Yngresso named as an honourable mention.
