Hamilton’s Transway invades U.S., returns victorious

The Transway Bantam girls were perfect all weekend, going 4-0 to win their division at the Eastside Basketball Association’s 16th Annual Great Lakes Invitational tournament in Fairport, N.Y.

Playing against teams from the Niagara area, New York, and Quebec, Transway put forth a solid and consistent team effort, winning each game with strong defensive play and aggressive offense. The undefeated effort Nov. 16-18 in their first tournament of the season reflects Transway’s training and exhibition games since September under the coaching of Nancy Wilson-Blackley and Sarah Townsend.

Transway won its games 50-14, 54-22, 53-15, and 59-19.
