The Grade 7 Boys Manitoba Magic basketball team competed in Vancouver,
British Columbia, in the first ever Grade 7 Boys Western Canadian
Invitational Club Championships over the May long weekend.  The team was
up against the top teams from British Columbia and Alberta.  The teams
from BC included RYBL (Richmond), 3D (North Shore) the BC
Provincial Champions, and RBL Rebels (Vancouver) the Steve Nash
Challenge Champions (BC).  From Alberta, they played against CYDC.  Their round
robin scores over the weekend were as follows:
