 Junior Girls Basketball

 The Junior Girls shot into action against Hague on Wednesday and have the Warman “Blast Off” tournament next weekend – a game against Hanley on the 24th and then our home tournament January 27 and 28th.   We are a young team and keep learning every time we step out onto the floor. It has been so much fun watching them grow as a team.

Senior Girls Basketball

 The girls head into Hepburn for an early January tournament on January 6th and 7th – We have a busy schedule of Home and Home games vs several communities and then we host our home tournament January 27 and 28th.  The girls were very impressive in December and have added some critical well played games to their December experience. I look forward to the month ahead.
