The DVSS High School bas­ket­ball team had a suc­cess­ful week­end com­ing home with the South Cen­tral Ju­nior Var­sity bas­ket­ball 2A Zone Cham­pi­onship.

The team coached by James Fournier and Will Bel­liveau com­peted this sea­son in the Golden Hills League at the se­nior high level and fin­ished in third place.

When it came to the post sea­son, rather than do­ing a play-in at the se­nior level of the South Cen­tral Zones, and be­cause their play­ers are only in grade 10 and 11, they opted to play at the ju­nior var­sity level.

The Zone tour­na­ment was in High River, and the Dynos faced teams from Brooks and High River. They faced Strath­cona Tweedsmuir of Oko­toks in the fi­nal where the Dynos won 7658.

“This week­end we played the best de­fense I think we have ever played,” said coach Bel­liveau. “They were lock­down, and that’s good to see. And the guys out there scor­ing, took care of busi­ness.”

He said the team has a lit­tle bit of size in­side and are also able to play on the perime­ter. This re­sult shows there is po­ten­tial for next sea­son, as no play­ers will be grad­u­at­ing.

“We are work­ing a three year plan, and we are go­ing into year two,” said Bel­liveau “It’s a re­ally good start.”

The DSSS Dynos boys bas­ket­ball team won the 2A Ju­nior Var­sity zone cham­pi­onship. Mem­bers of the team in­clude Hayden Ni­col, Mar­shall John­ston, Gabe Gu­mas­ing, Hunter Bit­ner, Evan Flater, Grier Baker, Alex Guo, Calin Sch­nurer, Si­mon Lapierre and Luis Arida. They are coached by Wil­liam Bel­liveau and James Fournier.
