The longest-running high school basketball tournament in the province will be returning in the new year.
The 66th annual Totem tournament will take place at Alberni District Secondary School and the Alberni Athletic Hall on January 6, 7 and 8. The 2021 tournament was cancelled due to COVID-19, so the tagline for the 2022 tournament is “Business as usual.”
Emma Fines, one of five Totem Spirit candidates and a member of the ADSS Dance Team, and her manager Jordyn Broekhuizen, a member of the Armada Senior Girls basketball team, have been taking part in Totem for a few years now.
“We are so excited to promote such a fun event that we have participated in for several years,” Fines said.
There are five Totem Spirit candidates this year: Fines, Maddie Joseph, Kaitlyn Aston, Caiden Meyer and Maria Banman.
