Semiahmoo Secondary's senior girls won the 2020 Surrey Fire Fighters Goodwill Classic banner.

For the third consecutive year, the Semiahmoo Totems senior girls basketball team has won the annual Surrey Fire Fighters Goodwill Classic.

It was also the third year the team faced the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers in the Axe division final.

The all-Surrey invitational tournament featured 20 secondary teams from the city's public and private schools. Semiahmoo defeated Enver Creek in the first round and Southridge in the semi-final, en route to the championship game Saturday (Jan. 11).

The Totems once again defended their title, defeating home team Lord Tweedsmuir 97-46 and bringing home the gold. Semi's Izzy Forsyth was named tournament MVP. Deja Lee was named top defensive player and Tara Wallack was chosen for the all-star team.

Sullivan Heights Secondary (pictured below) won the Ladder (junior) division.

The tournament has been running since 2001 and is held every January. Surrey fire fighters volunteer many hours organizing the event, scheduling games and securing sponsorships – all in the name of "promoting volunteerism, diversity in the fire service, and female sport."

The Surrey Fire Fighters Charitable Society also gives out several bursaries each year to players who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service in their community.
