Transway turns Blues into Golds

For the second year in a row, Hamilton’s Transway Major Atom Girls have won gold at the Scarborough Blues Association AAA Basketball Tournament.

With many of Ontario’s top teams, including Chatham, Scarborough, York, and Hamilton competing, the Transway girls emerged with a 4-0 record over the weekend to claim the gold medal.

As mid-season approaches, the team hopes the tourney will give them momentum heading into provincials in Mississauga at the end of March.
