Brockville hosted the first annual Stacey Dales Invitational Bantam Basketball Tournament over the weekend.
Teams came from Kingston, Cornwall, Belleville, Pembroke, and Ottawa to compete. Both Brockville Blazers Bantam Boys teams competed. The weekend was a huge success due to the efforts of Kimberlea Carpenter, coach of the Brockville Blazers Junior Girls Team. The Brockville Blazers Bantam Major 2 team won their first game Friday night against the Pembroke Pride and ended up 8th overall.  The Brockville Blazers Bantam Major 1 team beat Cornwall Lions, Gloucester 2 and the Goulbourn Hornets to advance to the Bronze Medal game.  After being up by 4 points at the half they trailed by as much as 8 early in the fourth quarter but came back to tie. With 3 seconds left…they scored a lay-up to win the Bronze Medal against the Belleville Spirits.
