Mount Baker Secondary is hosting a basketball tournament today and Saturday for local Kootenay senior boys high school basketball teams.

MBSS will be joined by teams from Kimberley, Fernie, Sparwood, Invermere, and Castlegar for nine games of “fast-paced senior level basketball” which organizers say should provide a “great weekend of entertainment for all ages.”

Admission to the games is free with fundraisers including a chilli lunch concession, a snack and bake sale, and raffles, all being held to raise money to aid the cost of tournament and travel costs for Provincials.

Group A features MBSS, Fernie, and Kimberley. Group B is made up of Sparwood, Invermere, and Castlegar.
