Ju­nior B girls Saints wrap up sea­son

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

The St. Anthony’s Ju­nior B girl’s bas­ket­ball wrapped up their sea­son on Fe­bru­ary 14, on the road tak­ing on Delia.

This was the sec­ond time dur­ing the sea­son the teams met. The first time the Saints were able to pull out a win. How­ever, with a short bench, Delia came out on top the sec­ond time.

De­spite this, it was a great sea­son for the team. While many of the Grade 7 and 8 play­ers had never played or­ga­nized bas­ket­ball, they all showed im­prove­ment, and all saw sub­stan­tial play­ing time ev­ery game.

Coach Pa­trick Ko­lafa said he is proud of how the team per­formed.

“Ev­ery one of the girls showed growth in their skills at­ti­tude and ca­ma­raderie,” said Ko­lafa. “Many life lessons are learned as part of a team, and the girls showed growth ath­let­i­cally and per­son­ally.”

The team was evenly split with grade 7 and 8 play­ers, which means there is a strong core of re­turn­ing play­ers to help bol­ster the squad next year, as well as a strong class mov­ing up to the Ju­nior A level next sea­son.

This year the team hosted its own tour­na­ment, as well as played in a very com­pet­i­tive tour­na­ment in Three Hills. They also played ex­hi­bi­tion games ver­sus Wheat­land Cross­ing as well as play­ing in the league with Delia and J.C. Charyk in Hanna.
