My good­ness, Mother Na­ture was not co­op­er­at­ing with the plans for the SWAC bas­ket­ball ju­nior and se­nior league re­cently. Hope­fully, the weather will set­tle down af­ter the Fe­bru­ary break and the curl­ing/bas­ket­ball play­offs can con­tinue as planned.

JU­NIOR BAS­KET­BALL LEAGUE

In the SWAC ju­nior girls’ bas­ket­ball league fi­nal, the SCCHS gr 9 Ar­dens won over the Waldeck War­riors (48-37). The game was very close in the first half; Waldeck had a two-point lead af­ter two quar­ters. Swift Cur­rent made some ad­just­ments at half time and pulled away in the sec­ond half of the game. Con­grat­u­la­tions to both teams on strong sea­sons. The ju­nior girls third place game was to have the Wy­mark Wolver­ines host­ing the Shau­navon Sil­hou­ettes. That game is post­poned un­til Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 27.

Our boys’ bas­ket­ball league play­off was also af­fected by the weather. The SCCHS gr 9 Colts were to host the Shau­navon Shad­ows in the league fi­nal. That game has been resched­uled to Mon­day, Feb. 25. The Maple Creek Rebels and the Gull Lake Lions have de­cided not to play the third place game.

SE­NIOR BAS­KET­BALL LEAGUE

The ex­treme cold weather caused the can­cel­la­tion of the fi­nal sched­uled league bas­ket­ball games. We used the stand­ings at the end of Feb. 10 to de­ter­mine league play­offs. The league semi-fi­nal games are on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 26 and in the se­nior boy’s play­offs, #1 SC Jr Colts will host #4 Gull Lake Lions and #2 Fron­tier Raiders host #3 Shau­navon Shad­ows. The se­nior girls semi­fi­nal match ups have #1 Shau­navon Sil­hou­ettes host­ing #4 Maple Creek Re­belles and #2 Her­bert Lau­rel’s host­ing the #3 SCCHS Jr Ar­dens.

SE­NIOR RE­GIONAL CURL­ING

Six SWAC teams will rep­re­sent the Southwest at SHSAA Re­gional curl­ing in Regina on March 1-2. Val Marie and Maple Creek mixed teams, Maple Creek and Gull Lake girls, and both SCCHS boys’ teams. The top two teams, in each cat­e­gory, will ad­vance to the SHSAA Provin­cial Cham­pi­onship (March 8-9) from the Re­gional level.

Six se­nior SWAC curl­ing teams will rep­re­sent the south west at SHSAA Re­gional curl­ing in Regina (Val Marie and Maple Creek mixed teams, Maple Creek and Gull Lake girls, and both SCCHS boys’ teams). Our ju­nior sec­tion curl­ing A/B cham­pi­ons will com­pete in the SWAC Ju­nior Curl­ing Cham­pi­onship in Swift Cur­rent.

All of our se­nior 1A – 5A SWAC bas­ket­ball teams will be off to their con­fer­ence cham­pi­onships on March 8-9. The fi­nal con­fer­ences have been set by the SHSAA and are posted on their web­site. This is the first step on the “Road to Hoopla” (provin­cial bas­ket­ball cham­pi­onship).
