Lions take senior and junior basketball crowns

The Sir Allan MacNab Lions have won their first Hamilton public high school senior boys basketball title in three years.

The Lions downed the Saltfleet Storm 57-41, the senior team’s first city title since the 2010-11 season, when they also defeated the Storm.

Nolan Narain led the Lions with 20 points; Sheldon McIntosh had 18. Woods Brown was the top scorer for the Storm with 14.

The Lions advance to OFSAA quad-A championship in Mississauga, March 3-5. Saltfleet heads to the SOSSA triple-A championship on where they will play Governor Simcoe (St. Catharines) on Thursday.

The junior Lions also won, beating Westdale 70-40 for their fourth-straight Hamilton Wentworth Interscholastic Athletic Council title (the crown wasn’t contested last year because of a labour dispute). The junior squad has not lost a league game in five years.

In Division 2, Sir John A. Macdonald won both titles. The seniors beat Waterdown 50-42, while the juniors beat G.P. Vanier 54-39.
