Four basketball stars from Pine Creek First Nation and one from Ebb & Flow First Nation are provincial champions.

Mason Chartrand, Kamdyn McKay, Rylan Chartrand, Kendall Neapew, and Leland Malcolm won the 18U boys’ event at the Hoop it Up basketball tournament.

Playing under the name Toba’s Tuffest, it was a dominating performance for the four as they won all five of their games.

On their first day of action, they scored 55 points and gave up just 31 as they got off to a red-hot start. Then on Championship Sunday, Toba’s Tuffest wasn’t to be stopped. They beat the Panthers, 18-14, and then clinched the championship with a solid 18-14 win against Team Eastman.

The five will now be heading to Phoenix for the national championships in October.
