With some of the best performances of her basketball career, Kolbie Orum led the Maple Ridge Ramblers to the Triple A girls Fraser Valley championship on Friday night at the Langley Events Centre.

The Ramblers trailed the tournament’s top seeded Brookswood Bobcats by 12 points with five minutes left to play, but came back to win 73-67.

Orum, who is the national program and on her way to the NCAA next season to play with Oregon State, had 40 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots.

Jane Grisley and Devan Cousins had 10 points each in the final.

The Ramblers beat the Riverside Rapids 73-57 in the semi-final, led by another stellar performance by Orum. Her incredible stat line in that game: 46 points, 24 rebounds, and 72 per cent shooting.

Devan Cousins joined Orum in owning the boards, as she had 17 rebounds to go with 13 points.

Earlier tournament wins were 75-35 over Chilliwack and 73-34 over the MEI Eagles.

In the bronze game, Riverside beat W.J. Mouat 85-61.

The Ramblers now advance to the B.C. championships on March 6-9.

n The Pitt Meadows Marauders beat Fraser Heights 65-59 on Monday night at the boys triple A Fraser Valley championships.

That sets up a meeting with Tamanawis, who are the fourth-seeded team in the tournament, on Thursday, 7:45 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre. They need a win to win a berth into the provincial championships.

An 81-57 loss to Terry Fox on Friday has Pitt playing with their backs to the wall.
