The Wheat­land Cross­ing Coy­ote ju­nior high girls bas­ket­ball team played their first tour­na­ment this past week­end at the Holy Cross in Strath­more. HCC hosted 7 teams from South­ern Al­berta. Our Coy­ote team is com­prised of both vet­er­ans and first time play­ers. Tea­gan & Tori Adam­cewicz play for this team. The girls played hard and bat­tled to close fin­ishes! Great fun was had by all in­clud­ing spec­ta­tors! Coach Baxter sees the de­vel­op­ment of a solid team with suc­cesses through­out the sea­son.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Bas­sano Out­laws Pee­wee team for win­ning GOLD in the Sun­dre Tour­na­ment, De­cem­ber 9-11. Ev­ery­one had rooms in Olds so lots of swim­ming and mini sticks were played. Play­ers on the team from Hus­sar are Dustin Holm, Ja­son Slemko, Cadin Hiebert, Em­mitt Filko­hazy, Dayne Col­lett, Tris­ten and Chase Fraser. Con­grat­u­la­tions boys!!

The Hus­sar Fire­works U14 Ringette team brought home sil­ver medals from the Cochrane tour­na­ment on the De­cem­ber 10/11 week­end. The girls played Fri­day and won their game against Red Deer. They spent Satur­day morn­ing swim­ming, shop­ping and en­joyed the Trolls movie. We lost our game Satur­day night against Cochrane but came out strong on Sun­day morn­ing with a win against Air­dre to put them in the B side fi­nal Sun­day af­ter­noon. They came up against Cochrane again, played hard but lost a hard fought bat­tle 6-4 which brought home sil­ver. What a great week­end girls!

Strath­more Mid­get Storm T1 played in Cal­gary in a tour­na­ment over De­cem­ber 9-11. Cort Arm­strong and Bai­ley Filko­hazy both play for this team and Clay Arm­strong helps coach. They had some close games but we’re not suc­cess­ful. As usual, the boys en­joyed play­ing and gained some more ex­pe­ri­ence. This com­ing week­end they play in Airdrie Satur­day night and in Hus­sar Sun­day at 6pm.

On Sun­day, De­cem­ber 11, Ella Hein, her daugh­ters and grand­daugh­ters cel­e­brated their an­nual Christ­mas lunch to­gether.

Spe­cial thanks to Can­dace Wil­liams for cater­ing this event and to Sonya for the delicious dessert. It was a won­der­ful af­ter­noon of vis­it­ing with Grandma.
