From August 2–5, regional U14 Boys and Girls teams participating in Ontario Basketball’s Ontario Summer Development Program converged to compete for Ontario Summer Games gold.

 

U14 Girls

On the girls’ side, Mountain Region finished first after their 57-44 championship win against South Simcoe. Mountain fought their way to the finals after entering the semifinals as the wildcard due to a close 51-47 loss to Central East North during pool play. The two teams met again in the semifinals but this time Mountain emerged as the winner, 46-37, and secured their spot in the finals.

In the bronze medal match, Capital Region took home the hardware with a 60-49 win over Central East North.

About Ontario Summer Games
The Ontario Games Program started in 1970 in Etobicoke as a showcase for amateur sport. They have now become Ontario’s largest multi-sport event, including both team and individual sports. Provincial-level athletes from ages 12 to 18 qualify through a regional selection process conducted by the Provincial Sport Organizations. The Games take place every two years and are awarded through a bidding process. They are supported by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport in collaboration with host communities. For many young athletes, the Ontario Summer Games is the high point of their sporting career, while for others the Games are a stepping stone for the Pan Am Games or even the Olympics.
