This year, the Ontario College Athletics Association has awarded Centennial College the prestigious honour of hosting the 2015 Belairdirect OCAA Women's Basketball Championship Tournament. The top eight teams in the province will compete for a gold, silver or bronze medal as they showcase their talent and compete for athletic success. Centennial's Athletics and Recreation department, in partnership with the Athletics and Wellness Centre, and the School of Communications, Media and Design are proud to put on this exciting event.
